Online Documentation for SQL Manager for SQL server

Excel 97-2003

Specify ranges in the grid for the target and source columns:

  • select a column of the target SQL Server table in the Columns list;
  • proceed to the Sheet grid: click a column caption to select the whole column or click the row number to select the whole row;
  • the selected column/row of the source file gets green highlight, and a new range indicating the source and target columns correspondence appears in the Ranges list;
  • repeat the operation for all the columns you need to be included in the import process.


If the source Excel file and the destination SQL Server table have the same order of columns or rows, you can use the iconAutoFillColumns Auto Fill Cols or the iconAutoFillRows Auto Fill Rows buttons to set correspondence between them automatically.


If necessary, you can choose to skip a defined number of the source file columns and/or rows using the Col(s) and Row(s) spinner controls of the Skip group (e.g. if you need to exclude column headers from the imported data range).

The Range dialog allows you to edit the data range for import manually.


Range Type

Use the drop-down list to select whether a column, a row, or a cell of the source Excel file will be mapped to the target table column.

Depending on the selected range type you should specify the column (e.g. B), the row (e.g. 2) or the cell (e.g. A2).


Start / Finish

These groups allow you to set the precise data range for import: select Where data started / finished or use the spinner control to specify the start/finish row (or start/finish column).



Use this group to select the direction for importing data of the specified range: Down or Up.



Use this group to define whether the specified range will be taken from the default Excel sheet or from a custom sheet (select sheet number or sheet name using the corresponding drop-down lists).
