The easiest way is to do it through `SSIS`. Since it is a bit difficult to explain it without the screenshots, here is a an [example][1] to get you started. Another option is `BCP` but that may not suit you. Another way to get it done is through using `OPENROWSET`. Here is an [example][2] how to use it.

Thank you "Usman" for your quick response. Is it possible by using T-SQL code or any system stored procedure other than using MSBI tools.

Create failed for LinkedServer 'XLSSHEET-LINKEDSERVER'. (SqlManagerUI) ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo) The server 'XLSSHEET-LINKEDSERVER' already exists. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 15028)
