Installing Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 on a shared server--supported or not?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Here's the scenario: we have a Web application that needs to open an Excel 2007 file, read the sheet names and pass the sheet selected by a user to a SSIS package for processing on the DB server. During development, we discovered that the Microsoft Access Database engine (Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0) is required for our application to perform these tasks when running on a 64-bit server. Details: ASP.NET 4/VS 2010/SSIS on SQL 2008 R2; 32-bit environments have no issues; 64-bit requires installation of the provider. We followed this link to get the components: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=C06B8369-60DD-4B64-A44B-84B371EDE16D&displaylang=en We have installed the components and everything works great in our development and test environments. However, we must deploy to a 64-bit environment that is controlled by our customer's IT group, not by us. They are balking at installing the components because of the following statements that appear on the download page in the "Additional Information" section: "The Office System Drivers are only supported under certain scenarios, including: " Desktop applications which read from and write to various files formats including Microsoft Office Access, Microsoft Office Excel and text files. To transfer data between supported file formats and a database repository such as SQL Server; in the

Cannot create instance of "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "(null)" on x64 Vista with x6

I am attempting to take data from an Excel 2007 spreadsheet and use OpenDataSource to throw the data into a SQL Server 2008 SP1 table under an x64 OS and x64 SQL Server.  I was able to get this to work under x86 versions of the OS and SQL by setting sp_MSset_oledb_prop with values of AllowInProcess and DynamicParameters to 1.  However, under x64 SQL 2008, when I set the AllowInProcess option to 1, I get the following error:  "OLEDB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" cannot be used for distributed queries because the provider is configured to run in single-threaded apartment mode."  If I turn this flag off, I receive the error shown above in the title.I saw suggestions about creating a .Net program and then forcing it to target an x86 processor, but this method did not work either.  I also saw suggestions about installing the 2007 Data Access drivers, and although I believe they already were installed, I installed them specifically, but it changed nothing.  I also tried remotely accessing the x64 system from an x86 environment, but it also changed nothing.Therefore, I cannot get the OpenDataSource method to work from Mgmt Studio or from an x86 program, so I would appreciate insights into how someone is supposed to be able to retrieve data from an Excel 2007 workbook in an x64 environment.  I find it hard to believe that with numerous servers running on x64 t

CLR Integration With Microsoft SQL Server

Transact-SQL provides as much flexibility as possible but, because it is not a real programming language, it has some shortcomings about many issues (memory management, exception handling, debugging, file processing (or streaming), object-orientation (classes), or thread management). Transact-SQL also lacks features of normal libraries (arrays, collections, serialization, expressions, or string manipulations, etc).

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

ISA Server 2004: Developing an Application Filter for Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration S


The beta version of Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 is now publicly available. It includes a rich SDK with several extensibility mechanisms that allow third parties to integrate their specialized solutions on top of the ISA platform. In this article, the author explores the application filter extensibility mechanism, which enables you to add high-level application layer filtering capabilities to ISA Server and to provide rich content filtering solutions. He also highlights the new features of the ISA Server 2004 SDK, then moves on to describe how to develop a basic application filter that monitors all data going through the ISA Server, and how to integrate a filter into the ISA Server management console to create a seamless interface experience for your users.

Upsize Your Database: Convert Your Microsoft Access Application to Take Advantage of SQL Server 7.0


What if you need to convert an existing Microsoft Access 97 database application into a true client-server application that is based on a SQL Server back end? If you know a little about Visual Basic and SQL Server, it's easy to make your app take advantage of the power and scalability provided by SQL Server 7.0. Using some concrete code examples, this article takes you step by step through converting the native Jet queries in your Access application into stored procedures and pass-through queries that SQL Server can use. You'll also learn how to pass on parameters when your client-server app calls these SQL Server stored procedures and queries.
