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
