I have SQL Server 2008 installed. I generate a csv file everyday and I want this file to be imported into the a specific table in this database. I need for the data in the table to be overwritten by this import.

Any way to do this?

Is the SQL table in the same format as the .csv? You can use a TRUNCATE TABLE and a BULK INSERT to push the file.

You can use BCP or the OPENDATASOURCE/OPENROWSET TSQL commands (using the Microsoft Jet 4.0 text driver to read this as a set based table) if the csv fles are available in a location that is accessible by the SQL Server Service..
