Upload And Read Excel Data/(.csv/.xls)File into DataSet and display in Gridview in Asp.Net using C#/VB.NET

Hi friends,in this article I will explain about how to upload Excel File and then read and import its data into DataSet or DataTable using C# and VB.Net in ASP.Net Web Application.
I already explained in the previous articles about Creating Dynamic CSS Menu From Database SQL Server in ASP.Net Using C#.Net/VB.NETJQuery: Send (Pass) Data (Values) from one page to another using Form Post and Search GridView records (data) on TextBox KeyPress using jQuery in ASP.NET using C#/VB.NET

The imported Excel File data is then displayed in ASP.Net GridView control.

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Upload And Read Excel Data/File into DataSet in Asp.Net using C#/VB.NET</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
                    <asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />&nbsp;&nbsp;
                    <asp:Button ID="Button_Upload" runat="server" Text="Upload Template" OnClick="Button_Upload_Click"
                        Width="190px" OnClientClick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to upload');" />
                <td colspan="2">
                    <asp:GridView ID="gvData" runat="server" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#CC9966"
                        AutoGenerateColumns="false" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="4"
                        Font-Names="Georgia" Font-Size="Small" Width="475px">
                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="User ID" DataField="User_ID" />
                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="UserName" DataField="UserName" />
                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Gender" DataField="Gender" />
                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Country" DataField="Country" />
                        <FooterStyle BackColor="Tan" />
                        <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#E6E6E1" />
                        <FooterStyle BackColor="#FFFFCC" ForeColor="#330099" />
                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#990000" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#FFFFCC" />

            End If
        End If

    End Sub

    Public Function ReadExcelData(fileName As String) As DataSet

            Dim da As New OdbcDataAdapter(cmd)
            da.Fill(ds, dt_SheetNames.Rows(i)("TABLE_NAME").ToString())
        Return ds
    End Function
End Class

The output of above code as shown in the below figure.

When you choose excel file and click on Upload Template then excel data will be shown in GridView.
