I just need a direction, ideas on how and where to begin.
I need to use Excel to write test cases for a database with several tables. What should I be looking for?
For instance can I write test data in excel for table below? Please help. Thanks
What role would Excel -or Excel files- play in this scenario? Are you using JUnit with something like DBUnit or SQLUnit?

All I have is a MySQL database with a couple of tables. I need to use Excel to generate test cases ( stored procedure test, type test, data size test, input verification) for the database. No Junit or SQL unit.
Is this even possible?

The question was really: why do you need to use Excel? What particular features does Excel have that help with DB testing? Or, to put it in yet another way: How do you intend to test the DB with whatever data/information ends up in Excel?
