Export to Excel file from SQL Server Tables
Hi,I am trying to create a SSIS package to export data from around 20 tables in to single Excel file multiple tabs.When I drag Excel destination and map to $Sheet1 I am seeing only F1 column in mappings. But if I click New it is creating new Tab in the excel sheet and I can see all the column mappings ? How can I avoid this ?Also I am first creating empty Excel file and then creating package. Is there a way to create Excel file automatically when I start the package ?

Not sure about ur 1st query.During the development you need to create the file before making the connection.Once done u dont need to create the file it will get created if not there.Hope this helps !! - Sudeep | Please mark the post(s) as Answered that answers your query.

These are run every month and next time when I run the package I dont want to append records to the last months file. I need to clean the Excel file or else create Excel file for everymonth data for example Test_06-01_09, Test_07_01_09 ...

If u wish to chage the file name on every run,You could use expressions to change the file name dynmically on the run.To do this set a string variable sat @fileNameIn a script task set the variable to Test + Date + .xlsSet this variable in to the expression of the connection manager.This should work for ur requirement.Hope this helps !! - Sudeep | Please mark the post(s) as Answered that answers your query.

In the past, whenever I've needed to run a report on a recurring basis like this, I create an Excel template with the fields that I need. Then, either use the FileSystem task or create a batch file to copy the template and rename it to a unique name...say MyReport-yyyymmdd.xls. Update your destination to be this new file and begin moving your data.Hope this helps.Cheers,Matthew

you asked: Is there a way to create Excel file automaticallyyesyou can add a "Execute SQL task" to run ..... CREATE TABLE [tblBlBlaBla]([UserID] INTEGER, [UserName] NVARCHAR(50), [SiteID] INTEGER, [ActiveDate] Date)keep the table name in a variable MyTBLVar , [tblBlaBlaBla]and in the DATA FLOW TASK, you'll have to have a "Excel Destination"and in the DATA ACCESS MODE use "Table Nameor viewname variable" and in the Variable name use "MyTBLVar"once running the pakage, the package will automaticlly make a excel file name with a sheet named "[tblBlaBlaBla]"it works in my packagesincerelySh

You could use power shell script to perfom this task http://sethusrinivasan.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/export-the-query-to-excel-sheet-automatically/ Thanks Sethu Srinivasan [MSFT] SQL Server http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlagent
