Displaying a SQL Server database report in Excel

We are working with SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition. We have been tasked with developing a report from the SQL Server database, which we then have to display in Excel. This data will be calculated using a query and then placed into specific cells of the Excel workbook for calculation and graphs. Should we use Visual Basics or does this involve other services provided in SQL 2000?

You can use DTS and SQL Server 2000 to transfer data directly to Excel by specifying Excel as your destination end in the data pump. You may consider looking at this knowledge base article for some details.
