Hi, My idea is to incorporate Excel into SQL. Sometime I take results out of the results grid in SQL into Excel to manipulate and search the data. Having Excel functionality would be handy

Hello, G_WED. As you've stated, the simplest way to do this without waiting for a new version of SQL to incorporate it is to do so by copying grid results to Excel. While we understand this may take an extended period of time for some larger result sets, this would not be expedited by adding Excel into SQL directly, and would have nontrivial performance implications. As such, we will be closing your suggestion as Won’t Fix. Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll keep it archived for consideration in future versions of SQL, if not by directly including Excel, then perhaps by including greater functionality in result grids. -Walter A Jokiel, Program Manager, SQL Server (
