I am trying to import some data from excel.

Some columns (when they are not number) are not imported.

Can someone help?

I am using the import data wizard.

Thank you

s4.01-2343  etwertwetrwetrwert                                      12144

Note - in the fisrt column, data is imported as Null, everytime values are not numeric like s4.01-2343   in the second column data is imported with no problem.   In the third column after import the first four rows all the data is imported as null...

That's data type issue in excel, ensure column has same data type as in sql table.

You can review the column mappings before you execute the import task. This way you can set data types as you wish. The wizard might have defined wrong data type for conversion of Excel data type to SQL Server data types.
Be sure that all columns are selected for import process, some may be marked for not to transport
