Export table from SQL to Excel


I have this

INSERT INTO OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0', 'Excel 12.0;Database=C:\1.xlsx;', 'SELECT id, p1, [add] FROM [1$]')
SELECT id, p1, [add] FROM t2

Occur error:
You cannot use the OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for distributed queries because the provider is configured in the flow of the container with one thread.

What the problem?


I found unswer)

After many struggles with this issue, I found the following solution:

  1. On 64-bit servers and boxes, you need to first UNINSTALL all 32-bit Microsoft Office applications and instances (Access 2007 install, Office 10 32-bit, etc.). If you dont, you cannot install the new 64-bit Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable components. Yes, its a headache but the only way I found to install the new replacements for the JET engine components that need to run on 64-bit machines.

  2. Download and install the new component from Microsoft:

  • This will install the access and other engines you need to set up linked servers, OPENROWSET excel files, etc.
  1. Open up SQL Server and run the following:

sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
sp_configure ‘Ad Hoc Distributed Queries’, 1;

EXEC master.dbo.sp_MSset_oledb_prop N’Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0′, N’AllowInProcess’, 1
EXEC master.dbo.sp_MSset_oledb_prop N’Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0′, N’DynamicParameters’, 1

  • This sets the parameters needed to access and run queries related to the components. Address ‘null
  1. Now, if you are running OPENROWSET calls you need to abandon calls ,made using the old JET parameters and use the new calls as follows:

(*Example, importing an EXCEL file directly into SQL):


SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(‘Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0′,’Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;Database=c:\PATH_TO_YOUR_EXEXCEL_FILE.xls’,’select * from [sheet1$]’)


SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(‘Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0′, ‘Excel 12.0;Database=c:\PATH_TO_YOUR_EXEXCEL_FILE.xls’,’select * from [sheet1$]’)

*At this point resolved two SQL issues and ran perfectly

  1. Now for the fun part…..find all your Office Disks and reinstall Office and/or applications needed back onto the machine. You can install the 64- bit version of Office 10 by going onto the disk and going into the 64-bit folder and running it but beware as in some cases some third party apps dont interface yet with that version of Office.

Hope that help!

On Windows 7 ultimate the app(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c06b8369-60dd-4b64-a44b-84b371ede16d&displaylang=en) set right and it worked, as I have already said. But on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (x64) when installing gives an error message, saying on this type of system, this app is not compatible. Although the system requirements for this app are listed in Windows Server 2008 R2 including.
