Best features for easily updating data in SQL Server using Excel.


Excel as a Front-End for SQL Server

Data Integrity

Conflict detection

Data Processing

After data is updated in SQL Server, SQL Spreads can carry out post-processing tasks such as cleaning, copying, and validation by using custom SQL queries that process the data.
