I think you mean import?

Source = csv
Target = SQL server

Just start the import/export wizard in the Management Studio, rightclick the database and choose Tasks/Import data...

If you're importing using VBA from Excel:

If you want to use SQL Server SQL statement - openrowset

I suggest not to use OpenRowSet since it often causes SQL Server to freeze, and not function on live servers. Try using add linked server, and that way you can export or import data.

Thanks.

script should be like:

BULK INSERT targetTable
    FROM 'c:\file.csv'
    WITH
    (
        FIELDTERMINATOR = '\t',
        ROWTERMINATOR = '\n'
    )

for more complete example, can refer to the following link

FIELDTERMINATOR should be  ',' instead of '\t'.
