Default importing or converting an excel data base

I have a database in excel, and I would like to import it or convert it in order to retreive this data to my page. Since the database is too long, I don't want to re-type everything again. How can I convert it or import it to VWD 2010?

Hi there,

If you have a full version of SQL Server (not Express) you can use Import / Export wizard to import data into a SQL Server (or other database).

Cheers,

Imar

If you install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio Express, you get the Import/Export Wizard. Once Management Studio is installed you can run the Wizard from the All Programs menu.

Ah, didn't realize it was also part of the Express edition. Thanks for the update.

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks!. I see you have two options there:
SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe and
SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe
What's the difference? I want to know which one to download

The x64 file is for 64 bit versions of Windows and the x86 version is for 32 bit versions.

Cheers,

Default Use x32 for Excel

Having been there myself, you will want to use the x32 version of the import/export utility. Office (I think) is considered an x32 product so it has Excel as a predefined option for the import.

I've been struggling with the same issue. Running Windows 7 and the Express Edition of SQL Management Studio has known 'compatibility issues.' Did you manage to install it?

Which version of SQL Server are you talking about? If I am not mistaken, the message refers to an unpatched SQL Server of 2005 / 2008. Installing the latest service pack should solve that issue.

I have SQL Server 2005, 2008, and 2008 R2 all running side by side on Windows 7.

I am running the express version of MS SQL. Might be a service pack update issue. The express editions do require a bit more work.

Thanks for your, as always, prompt reply.

Best,

Jonathan
