Export to Excel from 64 bit SQL Server 2008
Posted on 2011-09-21
I want to export from SQL server to an Excel Spreadsheet. I tried
insert into OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'SELECT * FROM [SheetName$]') select * from table
But I got error 'The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" has not been registered.'
This seems to be a common problem with 64 bit SQL server and there is a lot of confusing information available on the web, so can anyone who has done this tell me how to export to excel from 64 bit SQL server 2008. I am working on a SMall Business Server 2008.
Does Excel have to be installed on the server to aloow exporting to excel?
