How to import an Excel 2007 worksheet into a SQL Server 2005 table using C# with VS2010?

I am developing a C# web application.

One of my methods titled ButtonImport_Click() has the objective of importing an Excel 2007 worksheet titled "Book Credits (D)" into a SQL Server table titled tbl_SMR_Book_Credits_D.

A sample Excel 2007 worksheet that I import is attached. I only import the worksheet titled "Book Credits (D)".

The fields of the SQL Server 2005 table tbl_SMR_Book_Credits_D are defined as follows:

Field Name        Data Type
--------------       ----------------
f1                      nvarchar(255)
f2                      nvarchar(255)
f3                      nvarchar(255)
f4                      nvarchar(255)
f5                      nvarchar(255)
f6                      nvarchar(255)
f7                      nvarchar(255)
f8                      nvarchar(255)
f9                      nvarchar(255)
f10                    nvarchar(255)
f11                    nvarchar(255)
f12                    nvarchar(255)
f13                    nvarchar(255)
f14                    nvarchar(255)

You could use OLEDB to get a DataTable, and then use the SqlBulkCopier to insert into an SQL Server table.
