CData Cmdlets for Excel


The CData Cmdlets PowerShell Module for Excel allows developers to write PowerShell scripts with connectivity to Excel. The cmdlets abstract the underlying data source into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update data. The representation of Excel as a relational database gives the cmdlets a uniform interface and also enables you to execute SQL to Excel.

Key Features

  • Real-time access to Excel data in Windows PowerShell, with comprehensive support for create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations.
  • Pipe row objects directly from Excel into other cmdlets as input.
  • Streamlined installation via the Powershell Gallery.
