I have attached two seemingly identical VB Express 2010 projects... they both have identical (copied and pasted) code for Button1 to read data from an Excel spreadsheet and display it in a DataGrid... very simple.
However, one project consistently gives me an OLEdb error as you can see in the screenshot (untitled.jpg) and the other works fine... on the same machine (Lenovo W500 laptop)
I have gone through the compilation options, resources, MyProject files, etc for both projects, and I can find no difference. For instance, I made sure the target framework for both was ".NET Framework 4 Client Profile".
I am really scratching my head as to why one works and the other does not... can you detect some difference and/or explain the OLEdb error in this context?
