I have been given an excel spreadsheet with two columns with data.
There are about 20 records in this excel sheet.
Would like to write an insert query to insert these data.
I am thinking of writing an insert query for the first line iin the excel sheet and then drag it down to the last row of data so that it automatically writes the values of the columns in the insert query and i just copy and paste the script into sql to run.
This is what I have but the values of the cells do not get reflected.
Any thoughts pls?
'insert into TBLData (RE_ID, EMAIL) values (' & c2 & ',' & d2 ')'
