Good morning all!!

I have a script that grabs data from a couple of excel files and dumps the data as layers into a geodatabase. We recently started using SQL and SDE to have some cross connectivity for data updates through a few systems. What I would like to do is add a few of the files from the SQL database to my script, so that the script updates those layers in the GDB as well. Is python capable of doing this? If so, how would I got about it? Thanks!!
