    Hi ,
    I download data in csv format.
    The data has futures quotes for 3 months with following rows
    Symbol , expiry date , open ,high ,low, close, timestamp
    for each symbol there will be 3 quotes 1 with expiry date of one month ,2 with expiry date 2 month hence and 3rd with 3 months
    I want to store this data in
    Future1 , Future2 and Future3
    Future1 to contain all 1 month contract and so on

    Ahem, but what exactly now is your question please?
    I would use the import wizard or write a simple SSIS package to get the data from csv to SQL Server.

    Load the data into a staging table and then use a calendar table to insert matching rows into the final table. Since a characteristics of a future is its standardization it should be possible to grab the expiry dates some source like Reuters, Bloomberg, etc... and have a column in your calendar table which indicates whether a given date is an expiry date or not. that way you could safe to hardcode the expiry days in your import. You just have to maintain the calendar table.

    As you need to control the process out side of SQL Server you will need to perform data calculations within SSIS packages, as referred by Frank you could follow.

    Do you need to store the data in seperate worksheets or as rows?
