Importing Data into a SQL Server Database

You can import data from a delimited file into your shared hosting account's SQL Server database. If the data you want to import resides in a database elsewhere, you must first export its contents into a delimited file.

Prior to importing data into your shared hosting account, you must set up a SQL Server database, along with the necessary tables and fields, to house the data. For more information, see Setting up a SQL Server Database on Your Hosting Account.
