Hi to everybody

How can I export all tables of a database to one excel file (each table should be one spreadsheet in the excel file) by using SQL Code?

Important remarks:
- The export should be generated via (T-)SQL Code not else how.
- I am using SQL Server 2008 R2
- I am using MS Office 2007

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for your support in advance

Additional requirements
- The Excel File should be created by SQL Code (it does not exist in advance)
- The tablenames are dynamic; I don't know the names in advance. Therefore the skript should dynamically read table names (using something like a for-loop)

The Excel files can be created using OPENROWSET or bcp



The looping can be done by means of WHILE loop by retrieving table names from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES catalog view
