Actually, i have a large number of columns. So each time Reading,inserting,updating is burden. So i would like to give this table in an Excel file, and ask the users to make their changes and i will read data from that updated excel file to my database table.

    openrowset('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0','excel 8.0;imex=1;
    database=D:SQL Training\IMPORT\All recipes 13320.xls',[SHEET2$]) T

Note: that Recipenames will be your table name where u gonna insert the data and this code is for 97-2003 excel sheet i.e only for xls files. mention the sheet name. while running the query please close the excel sheet and run.

Why Dont you Use the IMPORT and EXPORT TOOL provided with SQL SERVER.
The Tool probably you can find in the Drive you have Installed the SQL Server or in
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\dtswiz.exe.

Its a Data Transformation Service Provided with SQL Server
