How to access Excel sheet data from windows store app??

    Question

  • Hi All,

             I would like to access a excel sheet from my windows store app. So is there any library or nugget package which facilitates easy accessing of excel. After googling it, I found that there is a .NET namespace for this (System.Data.OleDb). Unfortunately this cant be used from a store app.

    So please suggest a better approach for parsing an excel sheet.

    Thanks

  • There isn't anything from Microsoft that can do so. I believe there are third party components which can parse Excel files and which support Windows Store apps. I can't make any specific recommendations, but you can find several if you search on Excel WinRT. Others in the community may be able to share their experiences.

    If my reply answers your question, please mark this post as answered.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
