Yes, but then it only provides with the  live a feed of the SQL, I am try to update the data using the Microsoft Excel... For example if I enter something in excel, automatic changes need to be done in SQL Data..Am not sure..May be I might need to create a macro.......

I apologize as I got your question the other way around...to update SQL from EXCEL edit is even easier as you can link the two EXCEL sheet to the SQL table like via an ODBC like:
http://www.toadworld.com/platforms/sql-server/w/wiki/10392.editing-an-sql-server-table-in-excel

OR use ROWSET in a SSIS scheduled package for instance like:

OR use a 3rd party tool like SQL Spreads that can do that:
