    I think if you are using <asp:____> controls, you are using Web Forms, not MVC.

    If you are using Web Forms, consider using RichTextBox instead of TextBox, or adding an extension like TinyMCE.  I'm not at home right now, so I'm not sure exactly how much of an Excel copied table will work in a RichTextBox, but I'm pretty sure a TextBox is never going to give you anything but text.

    In past experiences, I found I sometimes got nicer results by pasting copied Excel information into Word first, then re-copying the Word table before pasting on my site.

    Hi Universal Enterprises,

    It seems you want to paste a table into textbox.

    If so , I suggest you could use ckeditor.

    There is a quick start of it , you only need to add a js reference and write little js.

    Below is the code.Please don't forget to add ValidateRequestMode="Disabled"  or you couldn't pass the text to server

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="mainTextBox"
                ValidateRequestMode="Disabled"  TextMode="MultiLine"
            .create( document.querySelector( '#mainTextBox' ) )
            .catch( error => {
                console.error( error );
            } );

    You could get the text as before

      if (IsPostBack)
                   string text  = mainTextBox.Text;

    The result.

    For full feature of ckeditor,you could refer to https://github.com/ckeditor/

    Hi Universal Enterprises,

    You could also use ajaxToolkie HtmlEditor.Below is my code.It could extend Textbox. 

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="HtmlEditorExe.aspx.cs" Inherits="MyWebFormCases.ExtraControls3.HtmlEditorExe" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="ajaxToolkit" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
                    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
            <ajaxToolkit:HtmlEditorExtender ID="HtmlEditorExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="TextBox1"></ajaxToolkit:HtmlEditorExtender>
            <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Width="300px" Height="400px"></asp:TextBox>

    If you paste your excel in the textbox ,it may be unaligned, please click  Justify full,but it has no border.

    You should install ajaxtoolkit first.


    If it shows error  when you use HtmlEditor.Sanitizer,please try to install Sanitizer using nuget.

    Hi Universal Enterprises,

    I'm sorry. The simplest way to solve your problem is to add EnableSanitization="false" to your htmleditorextendor.

      <ajaxToolkit:HtmlEditorExtender ID="HtmlEditorExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="TextBox1" EnableSanitization="false" >

    For more information about how to configure htmleditorextender , you could refer to https://www.aspsnippets.com/Articles/ASPNet-AJAX-Control-Toolkit-HtmlEditorExtender-Example.aspx

    Hi Universal Enterprises,

    This is what HtmlEdior does,it save the html data of the table in sqlserver.

    If you want to get the data of it , I suggest you could upload the excel file and use excel library to read data from it and then save into database


    If you meet Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine, you could refer to 


    Or just use xslx to upload.

    Hi Universal Enterprises,

    This is what this kind of control does , if you want to save data in a table , please refer to the link I provided above Read-Excel-file-using-OLEDB-Data-Provider-in-C-Net.

    When you get a datatable, you could consider using Sqlbulcopy to insert into database.
