Excel to SQL

If you have worked in an IT department it is more than likely that you have been asked, more than once, to update a database from an Excel spreadsheet.

Business user’s preference to use Excel as their primary tool for creating these files is perfectly understandable; after all it is great tool for quickly adjusting, copying and transforming data.
