Hi,

I have an excel 2010 with multiple tabs(around 10 tabs) in it with each tab containing the data.

I am using Microsoft SQL server Management Studio 2008 R2.

I would like to import the data from the excel from all tabs into my single table in the database.
This is one time activity.

I could use import wizard and load only one tab or one worksheet in the excel one time.

I am forced to connect again to wizard to load the second tab (worksheet) in the excel.

When I map tow Sources(two worksheets in the same excel) and Destination as same table for both the sheets it is giving
error as " The sam destination table name is used more than once. All destination table names must be unique"

I have many worksheets in a single excel.

So Can you please let me know if the is there any way to load all in one table so that I can avoid every time opening the wizard.


Thanks.

Here is the solution
http://raresql.com/2013/02/22/step-by-step-data-migration-from-excel-2007-and-above-to-sql-server/

In your case you just need to change sheet name each time.

For example :

SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET ('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', 'Excel 12.0;Database=E:\test.xlsx;HDR=YES;IMEX=1', 'SELECT * FROM [sheet1$]');


SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET ('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', 'Excel 12.0;Database=E:\test.xlsx;HDR=YES;IMEX=1', 'SELECT * FROM [sheet2$]');

SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET ('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', 'Excel 12.0;Database=E:\test.xlsx;HDR=YES;IMEX=1', 'SELECT * FROM [sheet3$]');

Hi All,

I do not know how to use and what is SSIS also...So is there any way other than this SSIS?

When I use like below code

Insert into SQLServerTable Select * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
    'Excel 8.0;Database=D:\testing.xls;HDR=YES',
    'SELECT * FROM [SheetName$]')

am getting The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.) has not been registered..

am not able to open

In this case workaround can be...

Get the all sheet name in a new sheet within that  workbook

Then read that new sheet through  query store the name of all sheets in a table
Then create dynamic queries for each sheet using table values and import the data  


You can get list of all sheets in a new sheet using VBA (macros)..  check below link
