  • Please use the post button in the appropiate forum for your question. I moved this here as it has to do with data access in .NET.


    Please provide more details about what error it is that you get? What description does it have?

  • You have not posted the error, but I believe you need to put part of the connection string for the Extended Properties into additional double quotes. It is some sort of string inside another string, like


    string connString = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+excelfilename+@";Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1""";
