Hi - I am trying to write a stored procedure to export the data from a table to excel document.
May I know how to do this, I tried to in the below way but that did not work.

INSERT INTO OPENROWSET ('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'Excel 8.0;Database=C:\Report\test.xls;','Select * from [GasEUR$]')
SELECT * FROM Report_temp

Error: Cannot create an instance of OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for linked server "(null)".


The excel document was not created before hand so is it possible to write a stored procedure that creates the excel document and exports data from table Report_temp to that excel.

Thanks,

1) Please check if you have installed the Jet drivers or MS Office drivers.
2) That you have the write/read permissions for the folder you are accessing.
3) If its a 64 bit machine, then you may need to use 64 bit driver connection string for excel.

I have always found it easier to import data from the database into an excel spreadsheet rather than the other way around. Open excel and select the data tab, select From Microsoft Query from the From Other Sources menu in the Get External Data section of the spreadsheet. From there you can make an ODBC connection to your database, then follow the Query Wizard to import data from the database table(s).

Give this a whirl -->  Microsoft Excel & SQL Server:  Self service BI to give users the data they want, which is an article I wrote on how to hotwire SQL Server Stored Procedures (you can use a table if it floats your boat) into Excel.

@Jim - There is no stored procedure in that link that helps me to export data to excel.

My requirements:

1) write a stored procedure that exports table data to excel
2) not exporting thru excel
3) I want to call that stored procedure every day and that stored procedure should create an excel when ever i call it.

is this possible ?

THanks
