Good Day Experts!

Hope you all can help me with my dilemna.  I have query results in QueryAnalyzer.  I need to get it to Excel.  I cannot save as CSV as some of the column values have commas in them.  

What is the best way to get this data into Excel?

Thanks,

create a data source in Excel, pointing to your server and run the query directly.

Menu: Data - From Other Sources - From SQL Server
fill out the wizard

You'll get the table in Excel.

Select a cell (from the table) go to Data - Connections - Properties - Definition:
Command Type: SQL
Command Text: Your query

Thanks for responding.  But I am not sure where to put the query that I was using in QueryAnalyzer?

I cannot afford to import the entire contents of the SQL table into Excel and then query it.

after you click the Finish button of the wizard, a new window will appear, where you chose the range to place the data. Click the properties button on that window, click the Definition tab, change the "Command Type" to SQL, and place your query on the "Command text" area

Ok, I will try now.  I was not aware of this in Excel and appreciate your patience with my first time use.
