I am looking to find some sample c# code that will help me understand how to take data from and excel sheet and insert into a table in an sql database. Basically, I have an ap that the user can browse for the saved excel file, then click an upload button to process the insert. The excel sheet has aprox 16000+ rows and some of the data will have blank fields, so I would like to add a check in the code to catch the blank fields.Thanks for the help

you can query an excel file using SQL with JET

you would need to save the uploaded file temporarily so you can query it with JET. Once you get your results you can loop through them checking for nulls and inserting them into your DB.
