I have a road block that I need to find a work around for. I work on a system where the Databases reside on a soley database server (SQL 2005). I need to run a stored procedure on a nightly basis and export the results into a template excel file and put out on shares. Sounds simple right? Here's the problem. In order to do this through SSIS, I need to install Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel on the server so I can reference the assembly in the SSIS package. Unfortunately, this is a huge company and trying to get this installed on the database server is not going to be allowed. So, does anyone have any idea on how to do this either w/o SSIS or w/SSIS working around this problem. Or, is this really a problem? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I haven’t extracted data using SSIS before, but it is easy enough to use Excel and VBA as the controlling program, and pull the data from the database, and then save it to where ever you need. You can then schedule the excel workbook to open and run every night.
