I've googled all over the net but can't find a way to make an Excel GUI for SQL Server 2008 express.

I know you can use wizards to import excel data. I want something more automated.

I know you can "connect" to odbc datasources but this is only half the solution.

I know you can import from excel to SQL Server but again - this is through wizards and not seamless.

I thought there would be dozens of examples where VB forms in Excel download recordsets, navigate through them with forms and then upload changes either record by record or as a batch.

I don't have MS Access so I'm kinda stuck with making some sort of read/write GUI with Excel and Excel VBA.

Is this totally unheard of??
