How to import data from a text file to an already existing table in SQL Server 20005.
I tried "Tasks" --> "Import Data" --> SQL Server Import and Export Wizard.

I didn't find any option where I can choose a destination table. Table already exists but in Wizard, how do I skip column names?

in my text data, I have all the data in the right order.

Example:
abc123,TestLName,TestFName,,Staff,abc123@xxx.edu,12345678,,,,,,,,,,Yes,,123 abc road,San Marcos,TX,487574,NULL,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,LDAP
