Hi!

After the solution in Related Question was implemented, I was wondering if there any way to validate if the Excel sheet has the same structure of the table.

Is possible to validate this?

Thanks in advance!

Depends on what you mean by same structure.  If you mean column headers, you would use the Excel API to open the file and read each header and compare to database.  

Data type is another issue.  When you import as you're doing on the previous question, data type is determined by the first few rows.  If you need to test for sure, then you would also need to open the Excel file (see sample code) and perform a test on the sheet in the file.

Here's some sample code for opening an Excel file from c#.
