Trying to import spreadsheet from Excel 2007 to a table in SQL Server 2005, when I follow the steps for a linked server ,, I am able to create a linked server but because the instructions I am following are calling for a Microsoft 4.0 Jet something or another as "Provider" and I do not have that I am getting an error.. I have the a list of providers but the 4.0 Jet is not one of them...

 

Any help is greatly appreciated

Cannot update Excel 2007 spreadsheet as linked server within SQL 2005 or SQL 2008 via ADO

  
Greetings!

I am having difficulty updating an Excel worksheet via the ACE.OLEDB.12.0
provider.

I have a worksheet defined as a linked server in SQL Server via this
provider, and all attempts to update the lone worksheet in this file as a
linked server results in the following:

OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "linked_excel"
returned message "Bookmark is invalid.".
Msg 7346, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot get the data of the row from the OLE DB provider
"Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "linked_excel".

The query:
update linked_excel...sheet1$ set error_col='hithere' where
)='G'

However, when I try to perform precisely the same update against the same
source via openrowset, it works, to-wit:

update openrowset('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','Excel
12.0;HDR=yes;Database=f:\path_to_file\filename.xlsx','select * from
[sheet1$]')
set error_col='hithere'
where
='G'

SELECT's performed against either version work properly.

The linked server behavior is consistent across SQL 2005 and 2008
installations.

I am concerned that this problem is an artifact of an OLEDB provider update that purposely disabled update b

Text truncated to 255 using SSIS ACE.oledbprovider to import excel 2007 spreadsheet

  
Hi All, Trying to use SSIS SQL 2005 to import an Excel 2007 file (.xlsx). I'm using Office 12.0 Access Database Engine OLEDB Provider with extended properties Excel 12.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1 The problem is when I have text with more than 255 characters. It basically defaults the source output to Unicode string[DT_WSTR] 255, If I change it it errors out. I have done the registry change according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms141683.aspx but I think it only applies to Excel source not OleDb Source. (A Excel source does give me a text instead of string )   I have also tried to increasing the length of output such as 4000 instead of 255 but it doesn't allow either.   Anybody can help?I'm stuck for a day. Thank you very much for your help. Regards, Koala

Hi,

I'm trying to import (Custom Lists >> Import Spreadsheet) into WSS 3.0 and I'm getting the following message:

Linked Server to access Excel 2007

  

Hi

I'm tried SELECT * INTO XXX FROM OPENROWSET alongwith Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0.

Apparently the query requires the sql account to have SYSADMIN privileges.

Considering that SYSADMIN should not be provided to a database account on a Production Server, I tried using the Linked Server method.

Following is my code.


Exec sp_addlinkedserver 'AB2','Ace 12.0','Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','\\202.46.215.35\sagarr\Test1\cpc\c2\AB2.xlsx',NULL,'Excel 12.0;IMEX=1'
Exec sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'AB2','false',NULL,NULL,NULL
go
SELECT * INTO [CPCAB2.xlsx] FROM OPENQUERY([AB2] ,'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
Exec sp_dropserver 'AB2','droplogins'


Now i get the following error

Error.15247-User does not have permission to perform this action

My Excel file, Database and Windows Application run on separate machines.

i have provided the following privileges

GRANT ALTER ANY LOGIN TO sqlaccount
GRANT ALTER ANY LINKED SERVER TO sqlaccount


EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1

EXEC sp_configure 'ad hoc distributed queries', 1

Hi, I have problem with "Server drafts location" not being remembered. And my "Server drafts location on this computer" button is not even checked but I still get the message: "The server drafts location you entered for offline editing is not valid or you do not have permission to access that location.

Please see if you can help out since this is really giving me trouble in my daily work. I have Microsoft Windows XP professional sp 3 and Office 2007 latest sp. Thanks in advance! Mari
