While using Import/Export Wizard, you have to follow these steps..
1. go to import/Export Wizard.
2. Select Data source as Microsoft Excel (in drop down button)
3. Give the excel sheet name.
4. Next
5. Select server name to which you want to import (Destination Server)
6. give the database name there (destination DB)
