Exporting table/sql result to an Excel/csv

The Problem

If you want to save the result of a sql query or a table in an excel file via Tosca, there is limited approach to do it. You may have to loop through the records and save them in an excel which will take a long time.


A Solution

Using PowerShell and Tosca, you can do it in a seconds. You can save the result to your local machine as well as a shared drive.


An Example


Use the “TBox start program” from Tosca to start the PowerShell. (C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe)


Enter the query as an argument and run.


$Connection = 'Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server=Your_Server;Database=Your_Database;Uid=YourUsername;Pwd=YourPassword;'


Send-SQLDataToExcel -Connection $Connection -SQL  "SELECT TOP 10 *  FROM Your_TableName" -Path 'C:\Temp.xlsx' -WorkSheetname Your_WorkSheetName




·         Make sure to install “ImportExcel” module before trying the solution. ( If you are an admin ignore the parameters “-Scope CurrentUser” )


Install-Module ImportExcel -Scope CurrentUser


·         You can also use Windows authentication instead of enter username and password. Refer here for the complete list.


·         Similar to this, you can also save your result as “.csv” using the module  ConvertTo-Csv.
