|Many times developers asked that, they want to import data from Excel file.|
We can do this by many ways with SQL SERVER.
1. We can use SSIS package
2. Import/Export Wizard
Today, I am going to explain, How to import data from Excel file by TSQL.
To import Excel file by TSQL, we need to do following:
1. Put Excel file on server, means we need to put files on server, if we are accessing it from local.
2. Write following TSQL, to read data from excel file
SELECT Name, Email, PhoneFROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0','Excel 8.0;Database=C:\SQLYoga.xls', [SQL$])
NOTE: Here, Excel file is on "C:\" named "SQLYoga.xls", and I am reading sheet "SQL" from this excel file
If you want to insert excel data into table,
SELECT Name, Email, PhoneFROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0','Excel 8.0;Database=C:\test\SQLYoga.xls', [SQL$])
