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. I run the following query:  (which i found from multiple sources on the net) Select   * From OPENROWSET ( 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'Excel 8.0;Database=C:\Users\Public\lenovoBkup\contacts\outlookFiles\noib2a.xls', 'Select * From [sheet1$]' )  and receive the following message: Msg 7308, Level 16, State 1, Line 1                                                                                  OLE DB provider 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' cannot be used for distributed queries because the provider is configured to run in single-threaded apartment mode.  (how did they know i was single and living in an apartment? lol) so after research of the following message i restarted the system and relaunched man

SQL Server 2008 R2 Disk Usage report showing incorrect data file


When I go to ANY database (System, AdventureWorks*, user) in Managemant Studio, I right-click on the db, select Reports, select Standard Reports, and select Disk Usage.  The disk usage report shows the correct db on top, but always only shows AdventureWorks_Data.mdf when I expand Disk Space Used by Data Files section.  This happens to any db I try.  When I look at Database Properties/Files for that database, the logical and physical file names are correct.

Since the correct files appear in Database Properties/Files, I'm hoping it's just a bug in the report.  Same thing happens if I run a Disk Usage by Table report for ANY database,  The tables for AdventureWorks always only appear,

Thanks,  Mike

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',
'select * from [Sheet1$]')

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 = '

sql server 2008 import/export wizard... completely useless??



import/export wizard in 2000 had lots of options.

I could copy databases without a care in the world. Including constraints, stored proc., AND the data, etc.

Now, with v2008, the wizard is dumbed down too much. It's a "stupid" copy function that fails on the first constraint it meets.

"Copy database.." is not an option here: it needs sysadmin on both source and destination server.

Re-adding the constraints manually is not an option either: the database is WAY too large. 

I'm actually hoping there is a temporary bug in the import/export wizard. Each option (and you have THREE...) returns with a new error.

Googling, I found I am not alone:

LDF File Disaster in SQL Server 2008

I am working on a startup company and the "dba" recently quit...come to find out he let the LDF file grow to 105GB - which effectively shut down the server due to lack of disk space.  I need to serious help as this database is also supporting our replication system and thus I cannot do anything drastic like detaching, deleting the LDF file and reattaching. I tried the shrink file option but the LDF file did not shrink at all.  I set the recovery model to simple, then tried shrinking and that did nothing.  This is a SQL Server 2008 machine - can somebody please help? Also, given that I am mainly a developer, is there some EASY reference on how to setup log file backups so this does not happen in the future?  Do I just perform a full backup every 30 minutes over-writing the previous backup, differentials, what? Thanks!

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?
