Any Way To Read .xls File Via C# Without Having Excel Installed?

P: n/a
hi everyone,

is this possible? I know there are third party tools such as
Aspose.Cells for .NET, but do you know of any cost-free alternatives?

should mention using OLEDB is not a preferred option.

thx a mil

If you are not going to pay for it, then OLEDB is your only option, and
for highly formatted sheets, I don't know how well it will work.

Other than that, Aspose.Cells is one of the few options out there.

If you are using Excel 2003 and up (maybe XP, I don't know), then you
could have them save the Excel sheet as XML, and process that.

Hope this helps.
