I use SQ Server 2008 with SSMS. So in SSMS (Management Studio) there is SQL Server Agent that is used to run jobs. My question is: is there way to pull in data from Excel using SQL Server Agent?

Thanks, I have a SSIS package that produces the results I want. My problem came into being when I upgraded to Windows 7. In the past with XP I was able to schudle my SSIS package, however now the Scheduler will not "fire" off the SSIS package in question... Therefore I thought I would just go right to the server.

Jmiller1979: I should have been more specific. I am well versed with the Import Wizard, what I want to do is Schedule the Import on a daily basis.

That is a completely different question than the one you asked. The SQL Server agent is not launching scheduled jobs or are they failing?

If you have a SSIS package that does what you need, you can upload it to the SQL server and schedule it using the SQL Server Agent.

If you right click on the job in question, choose properties and look at the job history, it  gives you the log file viewer where you can see a history for that job.
