Are you talking about a comma separated text file?
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
You can Import text file directly in SQL Server. In Management Studio, right-click on database name then Tasks / Import Data... and follow the wizard. If you need to do it in a regular basis just save at the end of the wizard so you can reschedule it.
