I get an error when I
EXEC sp_dropserver 'ExcelSource'

EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'ExcelSource',
'Jet 4.0',
'C:\Local Data\Data\Geography\GSMORGOPERLIST fixad.xls',
'Excel 5.0'

select *
from ExcelSource...[Blad1$] xls
It works fine on one PC but not on the other. Can anyone give me a hint. (the excel file is not open in other application, it is a proper xls-file without filers turned on.

are both PCs using the same windows account to run SQL server?
