Easy Spreadsheet export and import from Oracle

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

One of the most common problems with extracting Oracle data into spreadsheets are the cumbersome interfaces and slow performance of ODBC. I never recommend any product that I have not personally used and tested, and I’m very choosey who I endorse. I always recommend the Excel-DB spreadsheet tool for Oracle.

Fast and Easy Oracle Extracts to Excel Spreadsheets

Excel-DB adds an "Oracle" button to the MS-Excel toolbar and you can VERY easily enter any SQL, press the button and see the results in your spreadsheet. Excel-DB also uses a native API, so it's faster than ODBC connections to Oracle databases. Excel-DB has its own native API and it's fast as lightening. 

"A one click table dump is provided but the main method for retrieving data is through SQL. Simply type the select statement and Excel-DB retrieves the data into Excel.”

Update Oracle from inside an Excel spreadsheet

Excel-DB also allows spreadsheet data to be imported into Oracle tables. According to their page, importing spreadsheet data into Oracle is as simple as a few mouse clicks:

“Once data is retrieved into Excel, Excel-DB allows you to edit the data in the spreadsheet. When the changes are made, the data can be updated in the database with a few simple mouse clicks.

Optionally Excel-DB will ask you to confirm each individual change.”

Oracle Excel export/import is Affordable and functional

The Excel-DB tools is very reasonably priced. At less than $400 per seat, it?s a great value and the site license discounts are huge.

Windows Vista and Excel 2007 are supported environments for Excel-DB. 

Best of all, the author is very responsive to helping his customers. I have used Excel-DB for many years, and I can personally vouch for this spreadsheet interface. You can get a copy of Excel-DB here.


If you like Oracle tuning, see the book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", with 950 pages of tuning tips and scripts. 

You can buy it direct from the publisher for 30%-off and get instant access to the code depot of Oracle tuning scripts.
