Hi EE,
i have a web application and i need to allow users to upload an Excel sheet and display the content in a gridview.

most of the solutions talks about reading the path of the file but this is not visible in our case since it is a web application hosted on production server.

moreover i cant upload them and save them temporary in a file and read them again for security reasons.

Thanks

Ummmm... If a web app, and user is uploading, and display in a gridview, then what does that have to do with SQL Server ?

It is going to be difficult if you don't know the location (path) of the file...

Maybe you can explain in a little more detail ?
