Adding data from Excel spreadsheet to SQL table

This is not a programming question, I simply have a lot of data in two columns in an excel spreadsheet of data that I gathered.  I want to copy and paste this (manually) into a table that I have created in my ASPNETDB in my ASP.NET web application.  I thought it'd be as easy as copy the column, and hit paste in the "table data" view, but it's not (it only pastes one cell).Is there a way for me to manually copy data from excel and paste it in a table in my SQL Server?Thanks in advance! :)

Excel External Table Data can only create new SharePoint List when Exporting from Excel?

I have a SQL Query that I refresh everyday in Excel. I want to be able to export this list over to a SharePoint list right after my refresh in Excel but I can only Export to a SharePoint list only once. If I try to export again to the same list then it will give me the error "The specified list name is already in use on this server. You must rename the list before publishing it to the server." I have web parts that have connections to this list and I do not want to export my Query to a new SharePoint list everyday. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

How to insert dynamic data into an XML or HTML format table


Hi there,

I have a technical problem as the title described. I need to achieve this by SSIS that means the destination file could be XML or HTML.

Help: populate Html.DropDownList from table data? [Linq to SQL model]


I have two tables, Users and Roles.  The roles table is a reference table for the different roles of my site (RoleId and RoleName columns). The Users table contains profile data for each user, including a RoleId column that is FK'd back to the Roles table [RoleId].

Both tables are in a Linq to SQL model.

I have an edit page created which lists all the profile values of a user.  The edit page inherits the User model.  One of the editable values is the RoleId field.  I want to set this up to be a drop-down list that contains items labeled using the RoleName column of the Roles table, and matched with values of RoleId.

How can I achieve this?

Checkboxes from data table


I have a data table that contains some values for Certifications.  This table can be updated in a different part of my application.  On the web page I am currently working on, I would like to have check boxes appear for every value in the data table.  I have been struggling with this trying to use a For Each loop and I cannot get it to work for anything.  Any suggestions? 

I am using the following Razor syntax to obtain my data (I know this works because I can display it in a WebGrid):


var db = Database.Open("MyConn");

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!
