Online Documentation for Data Import for SQL Server

MS Excel


Select the sheet for importing data from.


Select the needed source file from the list. Then specify ranges in the grid for the target and source fields:

  • select a field of the target SQL Server table in the Fields list;
  • proceed to the sheet grid: click a column to assign the column to the selected target table field;
  • the selected column of the source file gets gray highlight;
  • repeat the operation for all the fields you need to be included in the import process.


If the source file and the destination SQL Server table have the same order of columns, you can use the btnAutoFillColumnsXT Auto Fill Columns mode (default) to set correspondence between them automatically. If source file and destination SQL Server table have different order of columns but identical names you can use the btnAutoFillColumnsXT Auto Fill by Captions mode to set the correspondence based on name's identity.


Note: The number of the column for which correspondence was set is displayed at the Col. control. You can use it for setting the fields correspondence as well.


If new table creation was selected at the previous step, then fields needed for the import procedure will be created automatically.

You can manage destination table fields if needed. Use the corresponded context menu item to New/Edit/Drop field.




If necessary, you can choose to skip a defined number of the source file rows or columns using the Skip lines or Skip cols spin-edit.


Note: If table was properly created or already exists, it will be marked with a tick Tick. If an error occurs during table creation, this table will be marked with a cross .
