Import Excel data into SQL Server express 2008

I have recently installed SQL express 08 and created a table to import excel data into.  Im running on a windows 7 64 bit OS i5 processor.  I've disabled the firewall (temporarily) and will set the necessary ports once this is working.

Data Driven Subscription problem - sub runs slowly, has 40 errors out of 300, but report server trac

I have two report servers and a single separate SQL Server 2008 server hosting the data source database and the report server catalogues. There is a data driven subscription that runs off a sproc that returns 300 rows with email addresses for this report to be emailed to. The report itself contains around 30 subreports each with its own sproc to retrieve data. As the report is executing there are long pauses between the times when emails are actually sent out, and the subscription status will finally end with something like "Done: 300 processed of 300 total; 40 errors." I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting this problem. Details: I kicked it off at (say) 2:00 PM. Within 3 minutes in the report server execution log I saw 300 entries. There were exactly 300 people who should receive reports, so the master report should have executed 300 times and sent out 300 emails. So this looked good in the execution log. But when I checked report manager's status page for the subscription it was listed as processing 50 out of 300... Then all activity stopped, about 15 minutes some more reports started emailing out, and now I see there are around 590 rows in the execution log and maybe 97 emails sent out... Then finally I get a grand total of 846 rows in the execution log and a grand total of 260 of 300 emails sent out with 40 errors so 260+40=300 exactly. The time betw

Exporting Data from SQL Server to Excel; From Excel to SQL Server

I read some documentation on the web today about exporting data from SQL Server to Excel, and doing the reverse, exporting data from Excel to SQL Server.  Actually, this link was pretty good:



For one thing, what is Excel linked server "EXCELLINK"?


This is pretty good too:



This is very good; gets pretty complicated though:




I’m still pretty confused about how it all works.  It’s very easy to turn on the Macro Recorder in Excel, connect to SQL Server, choose a Table, and import date from that Table, but I would like to know if there is a more eloquent way of retrieving data, rather than doing something like:

"ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=EXCEL-4J2W8KYNP\SQLEXPRESS;UID=;APP=2007 Microsoft Office system;WSID=EXCEL-4J2W8KYNP;Trusted_Connecti" _

Compare excel data on sharepoint with existing sql server data


I have seveal spread sheets loaded on MOSS 2007 (we have Excel Services).  We host our SP on Sql Server 2008 R2 64 Bit on a Windows 2008 64bit server. I want to be able to write a query on that SQL Server database that can somehow access excel data directly from SP and cmpare that to data in SQL. I have been able to create a linked server (using 32 bit sql server) but have only been able to link files directly off the server and NOT from MOSS.

So the Crux of the matter: Is there a way of making some love connection that would allow me to get data directly from my excel spreadsheet that resides ON SHAREPOINT, via my Sql Server?


How to Import Excel Data into SQL Server 2008(64 bit) Using SQL Query (in Windows Server 2008 64bit

I am developing VB .Net application in Visual Studio 2008(64bit), SQL Server 2008(64bit) and Windows Server 2008(64bit) environment.

I need to import an Excel and Flat files data into SQL Server database using SQL Query. I tried a lot with the following SQL Queries directly with SQL Server Management Studio,

1. SELECT * INTO  dbo.ExcelImportTest FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0','Excel 8.0;Database=D:\PTPLDCT\DCT Test Datasource\DCT_Excel_Test_Sample_1.xls',

While executing i got an error as below,

Msg 7403, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" has not been registered.

2. I have also tried with MSDASQL provider,

Select * from openrowset('MSDASQL','Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};
Dbq=DCT_Excel_Test_Sample_1.xls;DefaultDir=D:\PTPLDCT\DCT Test Datasource\', 'Select * from [Sheet1$]')

Then i encountered the following error,

OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified".
Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)".

3. Finally i have tried the Query with Linked Server,

EXEC sp_addlinkedserver @server = '
