ADO.Net - Excel - 1st Worksheet

Medium Priority
426 Views
Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I use ADO.Net to open an Excel workbook.

If I know the name of the first worksheet, I can get the data no problem.

Is there a way to reference the first worksheet whatever its name is when creating the Command object?

Excellent.

The answer is: cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, Nothing)
or: cn.GetSchema("Tables")

which both return a datatable.

The only problem with this is that you have no clue which sheet is the first one (as they seem to be sorted by name).

It is not really a problem for me as the workbook contains a single worksheet (but my tests showed me multiple worksheets).
