Hi,

I have an excel sheet contains about 300 rows of data.  I needs to run a SQL select query that extracts these 300 records from a table containsing 50k records. Obviously returning a single record would be easy to do, but I don’t know how to do it for so many?

Any pointers? – using SQL 2008.

TIA.

you can use in clause and place the whole set of records there

for ex:, you would be doing like this for a single record

select * from table where column_name=<column_value_from_excel>

you could use the in clause and place all column values separated by a comma like this

select * from table where column_name in(<column_value_from_excel,column_value_from_excel,column_value_from_excel>,column_value_from_excel..)

eg:

select * from emp where deptno in(10,20,30)

where emp is the table and deptno is the column of that table

alternatively you use use formula generator in excel and prepare a formula using concat operator for each cell and dynamically place the column value, so that you could get 300 different queries, but i suggest first one using an in clause is better option

cool, looks good.  Is there any way to expand this so that I can do it against two columns:

something like this:

select * from emp where deptno in(10 + col2 value ,20 + col2 value,30 + col2 value)

Now sorted, just concatenated the two strings.
