Hi Robert, here you have a bit:

Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .Application app = new
Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .Application();

Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .Workbook book = null; //to access to book
Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .Worksheet sheet = null; //to access to sheet
Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .Range range = null; //to access to a range of
data "A1:B2"
book = app.Workbooks.O pen("c:\\test.x ls", Missing.Value, Missing.Value,
Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value,
Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value,
Missing.Value, Missing.Value);

sheet = (Microsoft.Offi ce.Interop.Exce l.Worksheet)boo k.Worksheets.ge t_Item[1];

range = sheet.get_Range ("A1","B5");

Only take care about release resources from excel. Use ReleaseComObjec t
foreach com object that you use.

System.Runtime. InteropServices .Marshal.Releas eComObject(rang e);
System.Runtime. InteropServices .Marshal.Releas eComObject(shee t);
System.Runtime. InteropServices .Marshal.Releas eComObject(book );
System.Runtime. InteropServices .Marshal.Releas eComObject(app) ;

Hope this helps.
