Databases :: Creating, Opening, Writing To Excel Files?

Aug 5, 2010

I am creating an site where a user uploads an excel file to check if any of the records exist in a database. Then they are returned an excel file with only the records that are NOT in the database.
I was thinking I should do it this way1. User uploads their excel file. The app opens excel file and loads records into a dataset (so far this is working with the code below)2. Using datarow and another function to check if each excel record exists in the database3 If the record does NOT exist, and it is the first record tested, create an excel file called records.xlsx and write the record into the file

4. Check the next record and if it does NOT exist in the database, then check if records.xlsx already exists then open it and write it into it.


Hopefully its clear, sorry if its not, I'm a bit of a novice at this. Is this a good way to do it? Does anyone know of any tutorials that might outline how to open an existing file and write to it?

Databases :: Read Excel Files Using Oledbreader Row By Row?

Aug 5, 2010

i'm trying to read an excel file and get data on a row by row basis. Since after converting the pdf file into an excel file, the formatting went a bit haywire but if read row by row, i'm still able to retrieve the original data.

As I am unable to generate the excel file using a single worksheet, i have multiple sheets in the excel file. I also need help on reading multiple sheets.

Currently i am onli able to get data via columns but due to the formatting going haywire, i gave up on it.

Visual Studio :: Opening CSS Files As Text Files?

Mar 25, 2010

My Visual Studio 2005 program doesn't open CSS files properly - when I open them in VS, it opens them as a text file. It is annoying because if I do something wrong, it doesn't show up the error and I have to sift through it all to try and find out what is wrong. Plus it doesn't show up the hints for the attributes.

Databases :: Loop Is Failing When Writing To Table?

Nov 16, 2010

My site extracts data from a MS SQL db and then connects to a mySql db which it writes the data to. My site is working properly when connecting to a db in cPanel at a remote website.

However, I have a mysql db also hosted on my site, and I'm connecting to it ok, but the loop is failing. There are 2 tables, one stores the category, and the other stores link data.

For each category

write to the category table
for each link in this category
write to the link table

The tables are being created, and the very first category is written to the table, but then nothing gets written to the link table.

How can I make this generate an error message? My webhost doesn't know what to do about it and they just want to see an error message.

I tried this once already, and neither of my lines worked:

HttpContext.Current.Response.Write(lnkid & " " & url)

Why doesn't that get written into the source of the page on each iterance of the loop? How do I see the data that isn't being written?

Opening Files In App?

Apr 7, 2010

how do you reference file paths for opening files in web apps? i have a class defined in the project which calls another class in another project which opens a file. specifying something like "~/app_data/file.txt" does not work of course.

using Server.MapPath is not an option because the class is not used in the context of an .aspx.cs page. is there a way to get the full path of "/app_data/file.txt" without being in the context of the aspx page? in other words determining it from raw c# code? the object would need to know its web context.

i do not want to hard card references to files in app_data....

the scenario is using a stream to open a file for reading....

C# - Opening An Excel Application Client Side?

Jan 3, 2011

I'm trying to use the COM interop assembly to export some data to an Excel workbook for an ASP.NET web application. This works fine in development, since the server and the client are the same machine. However, when deployed, this is not the case. The deployed version does not throw an exception, but it also does not open Excel on the local machine (since ASP.NET is executed server-side, this is pretty obvious).

How do I go about creating an Excel application on the client's machine?
