Your attachment is not readable.

Either you concat(enate) the contents in a T-SQL statement(s) in your job or - depending on the kind of usage of those Excel files - use a macro to format it accordingly (in the personal workbook).

I can't read your sheet (like others), but I'd recommend that you format a blank excel document the way you want, and then export the data into it using OPENROWSET. If you wanted to keep a copy of the template, you can have a step that uses xp_cmdshell to make a copy of the file first with a new name, then exports the data into the new file and leaves the original intact.

There's an example available at this SO question:

DECLARE @myfile varchar(800)

SET @myfile = 'C:\template.xls'

EXEC ('
insert into OPENROWSET(''Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0'', 
''Excel 8.0;Database=' + @myfile + ';'', 
''SELECT * FROM [SheetName$]'') 
select * from myTable
')

Open in new window
