Given an Excel Workbook with several sheets, how can the following be best done using SQL2000 DTS?
1) Find the target worksheet
2) Take out irrevelant rows that contain blank filler or header/footer text
3) Feed a SQL2000 table with the usable Excel rows.
Can the above be accomplished with data transformation tasks. Here's what I plan to do:
1) Create a Excel datasource
2) Create a one large column staging table
3) Create a data transformation task that import numeric rows from the Excel sheet to the staging table
4) Create the result table with appropriate columns.
5) Create a data transformation task that import map/feed columns from the staging table to the result table using string manipulations.
Please advise.
