Hi: Can any one please tell me how to i read rows and columns one by one from the excel file. Program goes into the else condition but dont know how to run a do while loop to read the column and rows one by one from the sheet?

Thanks.

Private Sub readExcelFile()
Dim objConn As ADODB.Connection
Dim objRec As ADODB.Recordset
Dim strFileName As String
Dim strSheet As String
Dim arrData As Variant
strFileName = "C:\REMITandNSF\remit.xls" 'name of the Excel file
strSheet = "Sheet1"   'name of worksheet within the Excel file
Set objConn = New ADODB.Connection
objConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & strFileName & ";Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;"""
Set objRec = New ADODB.Recordset
strtest = "SELECT * FROM [" & strSheet & "$]"
Debug.Print strtest
objRec.Open "SELECT * FROM [" & strSheet & "$]", objConn, adOpenKeyset, adLockReadOnly
If objRec.EOF And objRec.BOF Then
        'no data found
Else
    arrData = objRec.GetRows
    objRec.Close
End If
objConn.Close
Set objRec = Nothing
Set objConn = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

Change this:
If objRec.EOF And objRec.BOF Then
        'no data found
Else
    arrData = objRec.GetRows
    objRec.Close
End If

To

Do While not objRec.EOF
  'Do something with your data (what do you want to do?)
  objRec.MoveNext
Loop
