|Today I received a list of data from a colleague in an Excel spreadsheet. I needed to take this information and retrieve other information from a database.|
On the spreadsheet data is in column A. In column B put the following:
="insert into #tmp value ('"&A1&"')"
Then fill down the data
in your SQL app
Create table #tmp (
copy and paste the SQL statements and run. You now have a temp table that can be used to extract other information from your database.
