Issue while reading excel column names by using GetOleDbSchemaTable

After some google searching I found out how to read excel column names How To Retrieve Schema Information by Using GetOleDbSchemaTable and Visual Basic .NET . Though the sample is in VB.Net, I am using My code is :

public DataSet ReadXslToDataset(string fileName,string sheetName) { ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+fileName+";Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;IMEX=1'"; using (objConn = new OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)) { objConn.Open(); String[] restrection = { null, null, sheetName, null }; dtColumnNames = objConn.GetOleDbSchemaTable (OleDbSchemaGuid.Columns, restrection); string strColumnName = string.Empty; if (dtColumnNames != null) strColumnName = dtColumnNames.Rows[0]["COLUMN_NAME"].ToString(); } }

But I am finding that the column field is blank and henceforth getting the exception

There is no row at position 0.

The excel file looks as

S.No Issue 1 log4net message pattern not displayed properly in the log file 2 Reading blank rows from Excel while populating into dataset

and I have ensured that I am passing the right file & sheet name.

-------------Problems Reply------------

There is no row at position 0.


if (dtColumnNames != null) {
if(dtColumnNames.Rows.Count > 0){
strColumnName = ColumnNames.Rows[0]["COLUMN_NAME"].ToString

Sorry I may have the syntax slightly out - I'm more of a guy. Views:3 Time:2010-05-05
