How Do You Transfer Or Export SQL Server 2005 Data To Excel

- 1 answer

I have a simple SQL 'Select' query, and I'd like to dump the results into an Excel file. I'm only able to save as .csv and converting to .xls creates some super ugly output. In any case, as far as I can tell (using Google) this doesn't seem to be so straight forward. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer

Use "External data" from Excel. It can use ODBC connection to fetch data from external source: Data/Get External Data/New Database Query

That way, even if the data in the database changes, you can easily refresh.
