This was a great article! Only problem is that I get a page saying "Search for any content tagged Miscellaneous & usesqldmoandexceltoquicklycreatereportsforauditors & 2064 & SQLDMO_Macros.xls" and "Sorry, nothing found for this search" when I try to download the spreadsheet. I am anxious to take a look at the spreadsheet and actually provide some much needed reporting to management.

I get a "Run-Time Error '429': ActiveX component can't create object" error when I "Select Server". Can you please tell me why that would happen?

This is an older article I wrote. The underlying code relies on SQL-DMO which is installed with SQL Server 2000 Client Tools. I suspect you may not have SQL-DMO installed on the machine from which you are running. You can test by attempting to create a DMO object. Save the following text as a vbs file:

Set oServer = CreateObject("SQLDMO.SQLServer")

Next execute cscript.exe c:\pathtoyourfile.vbs

If no errors you have DMO installed. One other thought -- Excel macro behavior has changed in Excel 2007, be sure you're able to execute macros.
