What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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!
