Default Error: Could not find installable ISAM

I got below error when open the Excel connection in asp. Can someone please help me....

I have both the UAT and production environment on the same web server (only pointing to different folders), and it's so weird that the program works fine under UAT So I assumed the problem is not related to the server configuation.

Error Type:
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80004005)
Could not find installable ISAM.

strExConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" &
            "Data Source=D:\web\temp\Upload_2.XLS;" &
            "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=No;IMEX=1""" 

set oExConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
oExConn.Open strExConn
I'm using Excel 97 on the web server, does it require a different OLEDB verion (this is my wild guess, but I don't think so)
I checked the path and file name of the the data source.
