Hi thanks for your Support, But i Need to schedule a task to do this process? let me know how to do it.

Quoting from the same SO discussion...

" would have to step through the wizard once manually, to set everything up. Once done, you can save the steps as a SSIS package into SQL Server and have that executed at any given time, by scheduling it in SQL Agent. Works on any machine - 32 or 64 bit - no problem."

Is it possible to import data from Excel sheet to SQL database at scheduled time using c#
CoderPanda 24-Feb-14 1:34am
Yes, sure, but in that case you will have to write a windows service that runs at scheduled times and reads excel files from the desired location and imports into sql server. This will be certainly more effort than having a SSIS package.

Can you please suggest me how to do that. I'm completely unaware about these concept. Thanks in advance

Unfortunately I won't be able to write code for you, but here are steps at a broad level, I am sure if you google you can figure out the way:
1. Write a console app
2. In it, try to read your excel file
3. Identify your DB tables and columns and how they map to the columns in the excel
4. Insert data from your excel into the DB
5. Now if everything works all right, then add a new task scheduler to windows and have this console exe invoked at specified intervals
