Import Excel sheet into SQL table

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I'm trying to create a simple VB.Net program that imports an Excel sheet into a SQL server database table.
As the format of the excel file is fixed and can not be altered it can not be a straight import.
The import needs to start at line 13 and I need to import selected columns into the correct column in SQL server.
Im hoping to do this in code and not through SSIS, but will bow down if this really is the best and quickest way.
Any idea or examples please?
