SQL Statement we used above is

USE [AdventureWorksDW2014] 
GO 

SELECT [EnglishCountryRegionName] 
      ,[StateProvinceName] 
      ,[City] 
      ,[PostalCode] 
      ,SUM (RE.[UnitPrice]) AS [Unit Price] 
      ,SUM (RE.[ExtendedAmount]) AS [Extended Amount] 
      ,SUM (RE.[ProductStandardCost]) AS [Product Standard Cost] 
      ,SUM (RE.[TotalProductCost]) AS [Total Product Cost] 
      ,SUM (RE.[SalesAmount]) AS [Sales Amount] 
      ,SUM (RE.[TaxAmt]) AS [Tax Amount]
FROM [DimGeography] 
INNER JOIN 
     [FactResellerSales] AS RE ON 
[DimGeography].[SalesTerritoryKey] = RE.[SalesTerritoryKey] 

GROUP BY [EnglishCountryRegionName] 
        ,[StateProvinceName] 
        ,[City] 
        ,[PostalCode]

ORDER BY [EnglishCountryRegionName] 

For this example, we are selecting the [Dim Geography] and [Fact Internet sales] tables present in the [Adventure Works DW 2014] database.

STEP 4: Now, click on the columns tab to verify the input columns and then click ok. In this tab, we can uncheck the unwanted columns also.

Here we selected the DimGeography.xls as our excel destination sheet

TIP: You have to create the Excel sheet before using it in the Excel Connection Manager, and the Excel file should not be open while running the package.

TIP: If you checkmark the First row has column names option then, Column names will be saved in the first row of the selected Excel sheet.

Here we selected the DimGeography table so, to check the result you have to open the DimGeography sheet inside the DimGeography.xls

STEP 6: Check the mapping tab whether all the rows exactly mapped to the destination columns or not.

NOTE: If your input column names and destination column names are the same then, the intelligence will automatically map. If there are any changes in the column names, we have to map them manually.

Once you complete with mapping, click on the Ok button to finish the project development. Let us run the SSIS Export Data From SQL Server To Excel package and see
