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


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.

http://vb.net-informations.com/excel-2007/vb.net_excel_oledb.htm

also u can read the data in usual way .

http://vb.net-informations.com/excel-2007/vb.net_excel_2007_open_file.htm


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))

 m_connexcel.Open()

   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

            MsgBox(oRDR.GetString(oRDR.GetOrdinal("F1")))

          End If      

        End While

     End Using

   End Using

   m_connexcel.Close()

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...

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