It has code to convert a excel sheet to a datatable. Once this is done you can remove the rows you dont want manually and then bind it to a grid...

you can read any cell you want. Just skip the header part

 Dim oExcel As Object
        Dim wbk As Object
        Dim a As String

        oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

        wbk = oExcel.Workbooks.Open(Filename:="c:\temp\a.xls", UpdateLinks:=False, ReadOnly:=False)
        With wbk.ActiveSheet
            'read
            a = .Range("A1").Value
        End With ' wbk
        wbk.Close()
        wbk = Nothing
