I'm trying to import an EXCEL table into an SQL Server Table. Although new to SQL, I've done it several times. However for the first time I'm having to import a column that is a date. I'm not sure how the EXCEL column should be formatted so that it can be easily inserted into the sql table. Should the EXCEL column be formated as a 'Date'? If so, in what format ('mm/dd/yyyy', 'yyyy/mm/dd', 'mmddyyyy', 'yyyymmdd', etc.)?
In advance, thanks for all the help.
