How to read an excel file in compact framework RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using vs2003 (C#) to create a windows mobile application.  I need to import an excel file which will then be stored in a sqlce database.  Writing to the sqlce database is no problem, but i cannot figure out how to read an excel file in the compact framework in C#.  Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • I believe that you would need to do this under Windows since there is no data provider or driver support for Excel (or Pocket Excel) running under the Compact Framework.

    Is there still no way of acessing Pocket-Excel Data with the .NET Compact Framework ? Thanks Sven

  • There isn't a data provider from Microsoft that I am aware of although it looks like someone created an Excel Data Reader that will run under the Compact Framework:
