Importing excel data into SQL Server 2008 via ASP.NET

Hi All,

What would be an effective solution to enable a client to import excel data into SQL Server via an ASP.NET interface.

The interface will expect the excel data to be in a particular column format and will need to validate that all data is available within the excel file being imported.

I did develop a solution about 1.5 years ago which utilised the SQLBULKCOPY class... Is this still a sound solution or are there better methods to use?

Thanks,

Rit

Excellent thanks Rouchie. I'll start my research on SQL Server 2008 data types. This sounds pretty cool!
