I tried to run this command, and am getting the error message. How can I solve it
INSERT INTO OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0',
'Excel 12.0;Database=C:\autre\testing.xls;',
'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
SELECT * FROM dbo.contract Where PROJECTID=160

Msg 15281, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
SQL Server blocked access to STATEMENT 'OpenRowset/OpenDatasource' of component 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries' because this component is turned off as part of the security configuration for this server.
 A system administrator can enable the use of 'Ad Hoc Distributed Queries' by using sp_configure.

Seems like the sql server machine is missing "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable”

Am I right by saying that the number 12  in "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" refers to 2010 version of this engine?
What If I have access 2013 installed on my computer, what you will be the version number of the engine?
