    Importing Data in an Excel file on Sharepoint

    Hi,

    I am trying to import an excel file located on a sharepoint site to a table in my database. All I can seem to do is import the list structure then drill into a hyperlink in that list structure and it opens the file in excel.

    Is there not a way to import the data in that spreadsheet into a table as if you were importing it from your desktop?

    I must be missing something

    Thanks

    normally, you can run a macro that has: IMPORTEXPORTSPREADSHEET
    and you assign the path of the excel file to import. Im not sure you can place the path to Sharepoint path.

    you can always make it 2 step:
    1.save the XL sharepoint to local temp folder
    2.import the temp folder file.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
