Thanks Dean.

I read thru the info on OPENROWSET in the page linked to.  Here's one of the examples given:

,‘Excel 8.0;Database=C:\Temp\OrderValues.xls;HDR=YES’
,results) — “results” is a named range in excel

It appears they are using a sheet in Excel (or range within the sheet) as their source.  How would I go about using OPENROWSET against something in memory like an array or ADO recordset?

You can't do that. SQL runs on the server, it hasn't any way to access your client's memory.
