Hi all,

Using SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition. I am trying to import an .xlsx worksheet using ACE12.0 Driver.

I believe I tried everything in this blog post from Visakh : http://visakhm.blogspot.com/2013/12/how-to-solve-microsoftaceoledb120-error.html

But I am still receiving this error message:

quote:

OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "(null)" returned message "Unspecified error".
Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "(null)".



What else can I try?

thx
w

Kind regards,

do you have the driver installed on the same machine as your SQL Server ?

is the excel file located on the same machine ?

Thanks khtan,

I see Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 here in Management Studio:
Server Objects >> Linked Servers >> Providers >> ...ACE...

Everything is one machine

The name of the worksheet is Sheet1


Use ExcelDB
Select * Into tblTest FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0',
									  'Excel 12.0;Database=C:\Data\NFL Teams.xlsx;HDR=Yes',
									  'SELECT * FROM [sheet1$]')
