Converting Excel into SQL

Last Modified: 2010-03-19
Hey Everyone,

I have a hardware list in excel that needs to be converted over into sql.  Someone else made the excel sheet and it is very detailed.  I was wondering if there is a tool out there to convert this to the sql database.  I know I have done it before from Access to sql, but I do not see anything on excel to sql.

Watch Question


the last one from ozgrid looks ok, but I would really like to find an open source or free one like the one microsoft put out for access.

you can do it through asp or php

1. Upload excel file to the server
2. Set up connection to spreadsheet
3. Import excel data to a temp table
4. process data into proper tables

if you have access you could link to the spreadsheet, then export it from access to MSSQL.
I hope this helps.



That sounds like it would work, how do I go about linking it?
