proasp_howto thread: El Stupido Question

Message #1 by "Matthew Lohr" <mlohr@t...> on Tue, 20 Mar 2001 14:45:58 -0500
Hi there,

I think you'll need to look into DTS. This will allow you to import data 
from lots of different sources. You can easily import data from Excel (SQL 
can use the native Excel driver) and you can use script to modify the data 
to fit your needs.

Take a look at the following address: 
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/sql/dts_basic_71v7.htm (May wrap)
It covers some basics and provides some links to other articles.
