try this code,

OleDbConnection DBConnection = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" + "Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/PacerResults.xls") + ";" + "Extended Properties=\"Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes\"");
     string SQLString = "SELECT * FROM [PacerResults$]";
    OleDbCommand DBCommand = new OleDbCommand(SQLString, DBConnection);
    Data.IDataReader DBReader = DBCommand.ExecuteReader();
    gv.DataSource = DBReader;
