I am working on Excel Online (365). Is it possible to connect SQL server from Excel online sheet? Please provide me any help available.

To my knowledge there is no way so far, you shall use desktop version.

import data can be done in desktop version. but can we do bidirectional?

What do you mean under bidirectional in this case, return changed data to SQL server? Nope, that doesn't work from within Excel.
