I have an Excel with ODBC connection to our SQL database.

I have to update this Excel every day and send it.

I want to automate this process in a bat file.

Is it possible to update an Excel with ODBC via a command line / parameters?

I know, that Excel must be installed but I want to either start the bat file manually or fx schedule the bat file in my lunch break.

yes, that's possible. but what stuffs are you going to "update" in your excel? to automate the process, you can write a vbscript/macro and then let relevant scripts (command line / scheduled task etc) to call it.
