Over the next few days we are going to start the migration to a new forum application. I'm going to start with high post count and active users. You may receive an invitation to the new forums. It's not spam. It's just me trying to seed the user base. My goal is to open it up over the weekend.

Once we open the site we'll block registrations here. We should be open shortly on the new site.

Hello - I'm using SQL Server 2012 Express and want to import data from 400+ separate Excel files, which are all in one folder, into a table. From everything I read, using BIDS, a ForEachLoop and SSIS are all the way to go. However I can't save an SSIS package in Express, and can't create an Integration Services Project.

Is there any way to do a batch import in Express? Or do I have to import each file manually?

Thanks in advance,

nope.Unless you've atleast dev edition you can use SSIS. The only other is to write a procedure which makes use of BULK INSERT or OPENROWSET based logic to get file data onto table. You need then loop it for 400 + files
