What control are you using ?
I assume that you are not using the  !

you can connect excel file using OLED and read the data , then u can able to display it.

take a look at the following url.

also u can read the data in usual way .

Heres some code I use to connect to an excel data range  :-

Using m_connexcel As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection(String.Format("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
         "Data Source={0};" & _
         "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=NO""", SPREADSHEET_NAME))
   Using cmd As OleDbCommand = New OleDbCommand(String.Format("SELECT  * FROM [{0}]", DATARANGE), m_connexcel)
    Using oRDR As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader
       While (oRDR.Read) 
          If Not oRDR.IsDBNull(oRDR.GetOrdinal("F1")) Then
          End If      
        End While
     End Using
   End Using
End Using

Set 'HDR' in the connection string to 'YES' if you want to use the first row as the field names, otherwise the fields will be calledF1, F2, F3 etc...

>> I´m not using excel, It´s Access file.

almost the same as provided for excel

Code for retrieving records 

Imports System.Data.OleDb
Public Class Form1 Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form
Dim cn As OleDbConnection
Dim cmd As OleDbCommand
Dim dr As OleDbDataReader
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e as _
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
End Sub

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As_
System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
cn = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;_
Data Source=C:\emp.mdb;")
'provider to be used when working with access database
cmd = New OleDbCommand("select * from table1", cn)
dr = cmd.ExecuteReader
While dr.Read()
TextBox1.Text = dr(0)
TextBox2.Text = dr(1)
TextBox3.Text = dr(2)
' loading data into TextBoxes by column index
End While
End Try
End Sub
End Class

have you installed Windows 7 64-bits?
If this is the case, your VS2008 solution needs to target the x86 platform.
