SQL Server stored procedure to import Excel file into SQL Server table

I am using SQL Server 2012.
I need to import an Excel File and a CSV file into SQL Server tables.

I  Excel file is "C:\Data\Cust_Data.xlsx". The CSV is "C:\Data\Cust_Data.CSV".
The name of the SQL Server table where both CSV and Excel file should be uploaded is "Customers".
The database is "MainData". The CSV, Excel file and SQL Server table have the same fields.
Could some one please write a Stored procedure in SQL Server to import the Excel file into the SQL Server table.

Thanks

This can be done in SQL directly but SSIS is much better to import files.  A link to the basics is here:

Here's almost everything you need to know:
USE MainData

BULK INSERT Customers
    FROM 'C:\Data\Cust_Data.CSV'
    WITH
    (
    FIRSTROW = 2, -- remove this line if there is no leading row
    FIELDTERMINATOR = ',',  --field delimiter (depending on the region, some CSV uses ';')
    ROWTERMINATOR = '\n'   --row delimiter
)

Open in new window

Do the same for other files/tables. If you want to put it in a stored procedure, then it's very easy. Just learn about the CREATE PROCEDURE command.
