Hi

I am using the following code to create a Data Table from an Excel spreadsheet
What VB.net code would I use to get the Data Table into a SQL database as a new table?

    Public Shared Function GetExcelDataTable(ByVal FileName As String, ByVal TableName As String) As DataTable
        Try
            Dim strPath As String = "C:/Test.xls"
            Dim ds As New DataSet()
            Dim sConnectionString As [String] = ("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " & "Data Source=") + strPath & "; " & "Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;"

            Dim objConn As New OleDbConnection(sConnectionString)
            objConn.Open()
            Dim objCmdSelect As New OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM [" & TableName & "] where IsActive = 1", objConn)
            Dim objAdapter1 As New OleDbDataAdapter()
            objAdapter1.SelectCommand = objCmdSelect
            objAdapter1.Fill(ds)
            objConn.Close()
            Return ds.Tables(0)
        Catch ex As Exception
            'Log your exception here.//
            Return DirectCast(Nothing, DataTable)
        End Try
    End Function
