Do you have code to read from Excel, but it just isn't working on 64-bit? Or do you not have code to read from Excel full stop?

It is working on 32 bit but not 64 bit.

Carl TawnSystems and Integration DeveloperCommented:
Have you compiled your app specifically for x86?

There isn't currently an native 64-bit version of the Jet drivers available, so if your app is compiled with the "Any CPU" setting then it will attempt to use 64-bit drivers when on a 64-bit OS.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Well, using ADO.Net with the Jet drivers is a direct method; or at least more direct than using Office interop. It's just that there are issues with the Jet drivers on 64-bit systems.

Yes, let's leave this thread open for a few more days and see if there are more inputs.

Appreciate both of you.
