Hi Experts,
I am trying with XML Spreadsheet,
I use namespaces as shown in "Code Section".
Please find error message in attached text file.
I have this code in "xx.aspx.vb" file.

I get error for <xmlns> namespace, this code works perfectly in my local PC through VS 2008 IDE. But when deployed in server I have "Compiler Error Message: BC30203: Identifier expected".
I have set IIS Server --> Website Property --> ASP.NET --> ASP.NET Version =2.0.50727
Restarted IIS server, verified if above setting still exist.
.Net Framework 3.5 is also installed in the server.
Even after above settings I get error

Please suggest how to fix, its urgent.
Imports <xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet">
Imports <xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">
Imports <xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel">
Imports <xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet">
Imports System.Linq

Open in new window

In VB.NET the Imports statement is used to make .NET namespaces available to the application code so you don't have to fully-qualify every reference to framework object. For example:

Dim writer As System.IO.StreamWriter

vs.

Imports System.IO

Dim writer As StreamWriter

I've never seen Imports used to reference XML namespaces in that way.

I'd say remove the first four Imports statements and you should be fine.

I moved "Imports" lines and other lines of code which was giving error to New Class library Project (in the same solution). build this to get dll, referenced this dll in web project then it worked fine.
I guess these Imports (XMLNS) are not supported in website (project).
