Read Excel file from ASP.NET

The following ASP.NET application read the content of an Excel file using OLEDB. Here we are using OleDbConnection , OleDbDataAdapter and DataSet for doing this operation in an Excel file. First we have to create an OLEDB connection string to connect the Excel file


connStr = "provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='ExcelFile.xls';Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;";

Data Source='ExcelFile.xls' : we have to specify the Excel file location.

For read the content from an Excel file using ADO.NET , We can use the SELECT command like in SQL Operations.

  MyCommand = New OleDbDataAdapter("select * from [Sheet1$]", MyConnection)


  MyCommand = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from [Sheet1$]", MyConnection);
