SQL Server 2000 append table from text file

i will be receiving a fixed width or a comma separated file from my vendors.  they will match the columns in my table.  I am using Visual Basic (2008) to match the vendors freight bills against the shipping table.  so I want to append the file i will receive everyday to the freight bill table when my user selects the vendor and clicks a button.  so how do I make this happen?  Would it be best to write a stored procedure and call that in my code or figure out how to write the code needed to append the daily vendor files to my db table?

If you are using VB then if the file is a CSV (Comma Seperated) file then just read in the file line by line then do a split on the file and that will create an array of each value that was seperated by a comma Array = Split(fileline,",")
Then insert that into a new record in the table.
