Is it safe to enable Ad Hoc Distributed Queries? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Are there any security concerns or concerns in general to be aware of when enabling Ad Hoc Distributed Queries to query Excel data from a file located on our SQL Server? 

    We are using SQL Server 2014 Enterprise Edition (64-bit). 

    I did a quick search on the SQL Forums here and didn't see anything specific.
