How to delete rows in an excel worksheet?

I have the following code in the exeutesqltask but i keep getting a syntx error.

'DELETE FROM 4DialMeters'

Remeber that this is an Excel source and I need to find out what the correct syntax is for the DELETE Statement in Excel.


Kindest Regards,

What pray tell is the syntax error?

To be honest, I don't think you can. I seem to remember doing it through script, not SQL. I may be wrong though.




Cheers,

It's not a bug, SQL just misunderstood me!

I agree, I think that you'd have to perform a work around... steps would be something like:
1. Import to a temp table
2. Manipulate the records in the temp table
3. Export back to excel overwriting the old file
