Update SQL table with Excel data

I have an Excel spreadsheet with data that needs to be appended to and added to fields in a SQL db.  This is similar to a question with nearly the same syntax however there was no code or script in the answer other than referring to NuGet .Net.  It is ID: 27840398 asked by eseinc and answered by Gary Davis.  I'm new to useing Visual Studio and don't know where to begin.  Will I be using a CS or VB project or a different project code base?  This will be an ongoing task so creating a project that is persistent is exactly what I need.

What you need it's something more elaborated than a simple column match. I'ld go for SSIS package but let's see if some Expert can help you with Visual Studio.

You can do it directly in the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Just open SSMS, connect to the target SQL Server instance and right-click on the desired database name and chose Tasks / Import Data...
TaskMenu.PNGNow you just need to follow the wizard. Simple as that.

Not quite as simple as that I think.  I didn't explain fully.  One field in SQL, it already contains data, needs to be appended with an additional string and another field in the same table needs to be written to with a new string.  The SQL table Mfg_Part_Master has these pertinent fields:  PRTNUM_49, MPNNUM_49, MPNMFG_49, and UDFREF_49 and the spreadsheet has these pertinent fields:  PRTNUM_49, MPNNUM_49, MPNMFG_49, and [REACH Y N].  The PRTNUM_49 and MPNNUM_49 joins will give me my unique matches.  I need to append "<two spaces>(R)" to the contents of Mfg_Part_Master.MPNMFG_49 and write "RoHS/REACH 7/2014" to the field Mfg_Part_Master.UDFREF_49 where <ExcelSpreadsheet>.[REACH Y N] ='Y'.  I am fairly proficient with SQL but need help in creating the Visual Studio project that will allow me to run this process every week.
