How to import records into a GoDaddy database

I have tables set up on GoDaddy (someone else set them up for me.)  How can I delete all the records in the table and then add new ones? (the database has changed since the tables were created).  I suppose I have to use the GoDaddy database mgmt tool to do so?

I'll maintain all the existing fields, just need to delete and then add records.  I'm new to GoDaddy, and I know some SQL but not a ton.  Currently my data is in MS SQL Server, though if I can import into GoDaddy directly from Excel or Access, that would be even better, as my experience with SQL Server is not extensive.  

I'd appreciate step-by-step instructions.  Thanks!

Well, you can use the tool provided by GoDaddy if any or/else you can have your SQL Server database credential like its URL/IP, ID, Password.

login to it by your own sql server management studio (SSMS) and access that table.

BTW, what is the version of that database?

Thanks for the response.  I'm using 2005.  Can you specify what you mean by "the tool provided by GoDaddy" ?  My understanding is that you cannot upload and then restore a db in GoDaddy due to security.  So the data has to be entered into the system via transactions?  Is that correct??
