In Excel you can create a named range, which SQL / SSIS can recognize when exporting data to Excel.

If we're talking single cells then yest most exports to Excel methodology will have a parameter where you can assign whatever to a single cell.

If we're talking assigning a set of data to multiple cells, then the named range usually works.

Thanks for the grade.  Good luck with your project.  -Jim
