I am working on excel spreadsheet upload process where users export their data via macro VBA into SQL SERVER 2005.

So far I am able to import data from the SQL server into an execl but I am being challenged with writing excel data into SQL SERVER database:

Here is what I am working on
Sub Connect2SQLXpress()

Dim oCon As ADODB.Connection
Dim oRS As ADODB.Recordset

Set oCon = New ADODB.Connection
oCon.ConnectionString = "Driver={SQL Native Client};Server=myserver;Database=DB; Trusted_Connection=yes;"

Set oRS = New ADODB.Recordset
oRS.ActiveConnection = oCon
oRS.Source = "insert into table (ID,Name,State,Code) VALUES (Columns("A":"B":"C":"D"))"




If Not oRS Is Nothing Then Set oRS = Nothing
If Not oCon Is Nothing Then Set oCon = Nothing
MsgBox "All done!"

End Sub

1) Powershell is very useful in these circumstances
2) Another more manual way is , generate the INSERT staments and run as a script :
