  • 3. OPENROWSET not working
    I posted this in ODBC newsgroup, but perhaps here is more appropriate. I created a very simple Excel workbook that I'm trying to retrieve values from, but keep getting errors. From Query Analyzer I run select * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'Excel 8.0;Database=c:\test.xls', [Sheet1$]) I know this syntax is good because I followed Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 321686 and other posts within this newsgroup confirm it. but I get this error Server: Msg 7314, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 OLE DB provider 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' does not contain table 'Sheet1$'. The table either does not exist or the current user does not have permissions on that table. OLE DB error trace [Non-interface error: OLE DB provider does not contain the table: ProviderName='Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', TableName='Sheet1 $']. I know that Sheet1 exists because I created a workbook with all the defaults and Sheet1 looks like this: A B --|----------------- | Field1 Field2 1 | test 2 2 | work 4 I'm running SQL 2000 SP3, MDAC 2.8, Jet 4.0SP7 Can anyone help?

Unable allocate min server memory size to greater than 1GB

I have installed a SQL Sever 2000 Standard Edition with Service Pack 4 on a 
Windows 2003 Standard Server with 2GB memory. But it does not allow me to set 
 the min server memory size that is greater than 1GB.  Do any one know what 
the problem is ? Thx.

do you get an error? can you set it via sp_configure? technically, your sql 
can use up to 2GB on win2k3 std. though, this would be unwise 'cuz you have 
to leave some for the OS.

Check the setting for 'max server memory'. 'min server memory' will not be 
allowed to exceed that. Also, with /3gb enabled, 1gb is reserved for the 
Windows kernel. Ensure that in your boot.ini that /3gb or /pae are NOT 
enabled as 2gb of RAM is too low to be using those options (both eat more 
free memory for the extra memory structures).

I represent Joe Nam to revise the question.
1. our sql server have set "use a fixed memory size" to 1800M, since the 
total memory of sql server exist 2G.
2. We don't know why the usage of physical memory only allocate below 1G of 
RAM.
Please kindly advise the problem of our sql server setting.
Thank you for all advanced experts.

1.unable to allocate 'min server memory'

I have SQL2000 Enterprise running on a Win2003 Enterprise machine, with 16GB
of ram....and no other applications. I start the database up and get an
error "unable to allocate 'min server memory'", which doesn't allow the DB
to startup unless I bring the setting down to around 1GB.. Any idea why this
would occur, if I have this much ram?

Thanks for your help
