Hey guys
Hope your well
Not sure if i am in the correct forum or not
Aim- update a table in SQL from excel
Sql Table : [FDMS].[dbo].[Master_RM_Account_List]

File Name : RM Assignment
Fields:ParentID – Column A
,Rm_Account –Column D

Sql Table = Excel Table
MerchantID = ParentID
RMID = Rm_Account

When ParentId is assigned a Rm_account code (in the excel document), i want to populated SQL table (field :RM_Added) with the last day of the given month. For eg if a parrentid was assigned today 23/10/13 i want the date format to be 2013-10-31. I want the Start_Date Populated with the begining of the month eg ‘2013-05-01’ (This calculation needs to be from the date the RM_account was assigned.

I need this to be via a windows authentation
I am hoping you can help

you can use OPENROWSET for that
something like

SET RM_Added = DATEADD(mm,DATEDIFF(mm,0,GETDATE())+1,-1),
Start_date = your logic based on RM_account
FROM [FDMS].[dbo].[Master_RM_Account_List] m
JOIN OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'Excel 8.0;Database=<Full path>\FileName.xls', [SheetName$])xl
ON xl.ParentID = m.MerchantID 
AND xl.Rm_Account = m.RMID 

I'm assuming its a xls file with column header information
ALso didnt understand on Start_date calculation logic so make sure you put correct logic in blue part

You can run it directly in SQL Server management studio. Or place it inside a procedure and use EXEC Procedurename in SSMS
