    Hi, i am using Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 to read data from an excel file, but when in the excel file there are fields formated as number the are not readed from the OldDb. What can i do to get this values, the problem exists when inserting new rows where excel choose the format itself.

    The connection string is:

     connectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" + "Data Source=" + filePath + ";Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;";

    I get data using this code:

                    conn = new OleDbConnection(connectionString);

                    string strSQL = string.Format("SELECT * FROM  [{0}]", 'sheetName');

                    //esegue la query
                    OleDbDataAdapter adapter = new OleDbDataAdapter(strSQL, connectionString);

    Watching the row with values from numeric fields they are not valorized.
