create an ADO connection to the excel sheet, you can use it as you would a sql connection

heres the sample code, i am using oledb connection, so please import System.Data.OleDb in your code

        Dim con As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\query_Excel.xls;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1""")
        con.Open()
        Dim sq As New OleDbDataAdapter("select * from [query_Excel$]", con)
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        sq.Fill(ds)
        DataGrid1.DataSource = ds

enjoy!
