Hello,
I would like to import an excel document. The excel document contains 3 columns (Id, Name, Description).  I would like to show the data in a GridView.  I am using C#. Can you show an example how this is done?

Hi John,
What kind of gridview? winforms, wpf, asp?

If ASP (I am just guessing), you can read: http://www.geekcamp.us/articles/import_data_from_excel_into_gridview_using_aspnet.aspx

Just ensure that you're using the correct connectionstring.
"provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;data source=" + filepath + ";extended properties='Excel 12.0;HDR=YES;'";

try this for winforms, for web just open last comment (dataGridView1.DataBindind();)

string connstr = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.Oledb.4.0;Data Source=D:\excel.xlsx;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0";
OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr);
string strSQL = "SELECT Id, Name, Description FROM [Sheet1$]";
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
da.Fill(ds);
dataGridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];
// dataGridView1.DataBindind();

I would STRONGLY suggest you to take a look at: ExcelDataReader.
It can be used as any IDataReader and also lets you read any xls/xlsx format into DataTable.

I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Regards.
