Execute Access 2003 Macros in SSIS Package. How to call Access Macros in SSIS Package

Note: Change the Security Level for Access Macro, otherwise whenever the SSIS package
executes, it will popup a Security Warning Message. To avoid this, follow the instructions:
Open Access -- > Tools --> Macro --> Security
Click Security and change to Low Level.

    • C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 for Windows 2000
    • C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 for Windows XP and Windows 2003
  4. Add DLL reference in the Script Task
  5. Add the code given below
  6. Create a New Project in SSIS

  8. Copy Paste the code in script task editor

Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop.Access

    Dim objAccess As New Access.Application
    objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase("D:\TestMacro.mdb", False)    
        ' Add the Access File Path
