Export Data from SQL Server to Excel through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Excel using the CData SSIS Tasks for Excel.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for Excel allows you to easily transfer Excel data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Excel.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Excel Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into Excel.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Excel

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData Excel Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties. A typical connection requires:
    • Excel File

    The ExcelFile, under the Authentication section, must be set to a valid Excel File.

Configure the Excel Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the Excel destination table.

  1. Double-click the Excel destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  • Specify the table into which the data will be exported: On the Component Properties tab, enter the table name in the TableName property, under the Custom Properties section. In this case, you will transfer Sheet records.
  • On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.
  • Run the Project

    You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
