Here is the backend code for a peice of code I am working on.
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
// Create connection string variable. Modify the "Data Source"
// parameter as appropriate for your environment.
String sConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" +
"Data Source=C:\\exceltest.xls" + ";" +
"Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;";
// Create connection object by using the preceding connection string.
OleDbConnection objConn = new OleDbConnection(sConnectionString);
// Open connection with the database.
// The code to follow uses a SQL SELECT command to display the data from the worksheet.
// Create new OleDbCommand to return data from worksheet.
OleDbCommand objCmdSelect =new OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM RecordData", objConn);
// Create new OleDbDataAdapter that is used to build a DataSet
// based on the preceding SQL SELECT statement.
OleDbDataAdapter objAdapter1 = new OleDbDataAdapter();
// Pass the Select command to the adapter.
objAdapter1.SelectCommand = objCmdSelect;
// Create new DataSet to hold information from the worksheet.
DataSet objDataset1 = new DataSet();
// Fill the DataSet with the information from the worksheet.
// Bind data to DataGrid control.
DataGrid1.DataSource = objDataset1.Tables.DefaultView;
// Clean up objects.
This is a C-sharp backend for an ASP.NET page. What I am trying to do is read in Data from Excel and pump in out into a DataGrid. I have taken this from the Microsoft KB because I am trying to figure out why it ignores different data types such as dates. The end goal for me is to have a web based app that will read in any excel page and convert it for the web to a datagrid. I have tried to set the HDR=NO;IMEX=1; but that gives me an error, and I cannot seem to get rid of it. the error was "Could not find installable ISAM."
