Processing Excel cell values in VB.Net (Please help, its urgent)

Dear Experts,

I need to process attached excel and insert these records into oracle table. I have below code works for me. Moreover excel's cell(A1) is not readable. Using below code I am reading 1st 3 cells:

                Dim cmdExcel = New OleDbCommand("select * from [" & strWSheetName & "$]", connExcel)
                daExcel.SelectCommand = cmdExcel
                daExcel.Fill(ds, "CUSTOMER")
                dTable1 = ds.Tables(0)

                           strCUST_NAME = dTable1.Rows(0).Item(0).ToString()
                     strS_E_DATE   = dTable1.Rows(1).Item(0).ToString()
                     strDISC_DATE  = dTable1.Rows(2).Item(0).ToString()

Its skipping the R1 row and starting from R2. If I move R1-R3 to R2-R4 then it works fine and I get expected output. Moreover I need expected output without any modification.

Source Records format: Refer Attachment
R1 Customer: SYNTEL                  
R2 Period: 2016-12 - 2017-05                  
R3 Discount Date: 2017-05-31 00:00:00                  
R5    PartyName      PartyBix      Ranking
R6       AIG                     Insurance      1232
R7       Humana             Helthcare      3242
R8       Athena             Helthcare      3434
R9       BOA             bank              3431

Is the XL connection  with HDR=YES or HDR=NO?

Here it is:
strExcelConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strDestPath & ";Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1'"
        If strExtension = ".xlsx" Or strExtension = ".XLSX" Then
            strExcelConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & strDestPath & "; Extended Properties='Excel 12.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1'"
        End If
Like I said you have strExcelConn  
 strExcelConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & strDestPath & "; Extended Properties='Excel 12.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1'"

change to
 strExcelConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & strDestPath & "; Extended Properties='Excel 12.0;HDR=NO;IMEX=1'"
