Databases :: Page Times Out Reading Excel File?

Mar 31, 2010

I have some code that reads records from an excel file and then imports that data into an sql database. The issue only happens when the excel file has more then 350 rows in it. In the middle of the import it just stops executing and I get directed to the 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' page or just a blank page when using firefox.

I dont get any time out errors or any error at all but still I tried messing around with the script timeout settings but still does the same thing at about the 2 min 30 sec mark.

Databases :: Reading Excel File Without Saving To Disk First?

Aug 31, 2010

I need to be able to read an excel file from a file upload control but I can not save the file to disk first, it must be done in memory.


Above is my code for reading the data file if it IS saved to disk, but again, I have to be able to do this without saving the file to disk, it must be done in memory. I have not been able to find any sample code anywhere on how to do this from memory, everything seems to force the file be uploaded, saved to disk, and then read in the connection string, which again I can not do.

Databases :: Reading Hyperlinked Page In Excel File Using C#?

Nov 19, 2010

I understand how to use a connection string object to read excel sheets. What I don't know is how to follow a hyperlink inside excel, grab matching data from the linked page and return it to my database. Essentially, the spreadsheet has two columns:

Title | Class#

Class# has the hyperlink which links to an internal web site. The connected page has a course description and any pre-required classes that must be taken before you can take this class. This is where I'm rather stumped as I've not had to do this type of thing before.

Databases :: Reading Text File Into DataReader?

Jul 8, 2010

I'm trying to read data from a text file into a DataReader object using the following code but I get an exception:

OleDBException was unhandled.

Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.

Also, I would like to know if it is efficient to read data of a text file into a datatable instead of using StreamReader object and traversing through the recordset.

Databases :: Reading From An Excel Spreadsheet - Fields With Numbers Are Showing As DBNull

Nov 8, 2010

My web app is allowing the user to load a column of data from an Excel spreadsheet. For whatever reason, as it parses the data, fields that are just integers are coming up as System.DBNull. (Code in VB.NET but I work with C# as well, so feel free to post C# solutions)


dataRow(0) is System.DBNull when the Excel file has a number in Column A. Here's what the Excel looks like

Column A
123456 and 119655902 come through as DBNull

Prevent IE File Download Warning Or Maintain State After Warning?

Mar 15, 2011

I have an application whereby a user browses to an Ajax enabled page, sets up some filters, and then clicks on download report. When the user clicks on this button, they are redirected to a Download.aspx page, which builds up the report and appends it to the response as binary (the file may either be zip/pdf or excel). The issue I am having is that everytime the user goes to the page and hits the download button the warning message from IE pops up "To help protect your security internet explorer has blocked this site from download files to your computer". This is not a huge issue, but the problem is that when the user clicks this warning to accept the file, it reloads the page, and all my filters are lost, so the user has to set up all the filters to filter out the data they dont want and then re-download the file.

The interesting thing is that I thought I could track the filters using session variables, so that when the page reloads after accepting the warning message it could be restored, but IE for some reason is not loading the page in the way it should, and so the Page_Load method is never fired when IE reloads it after the user accepting the warning, so I cannot restore the filter settings on the page because I have no event to do it from!

I have searched and searched for a solution.. I have tried changing the mime headers - I am using content-disposition tag set to "attachment;", I have tried changing the mime type descriptions to different things to see if I can avoid the warning but to no avail. I have tried using an iframe but couldnt quite get it to do what I want it to do, the page was still being refreshed..

Databases :: Get Number Of Columns From Excel Or Csv Before Allowing Upload?

Mar 16, 2011

I have a page within our site that allows admin users the ability to upload configuration settings into the system instead of submitting 1 at a time.

While testing yesterday, i found that one of the upload pages allowed me to upload a excel file that had alot more columns than expected and when i checked the database, the first few columns that were expected took the values from the file, and everything else was ignored, but wanted to see if there is any way to check the number of columns in the file to make sure it matches the upload logic before accepting it.

Databases :: Reading CSV File From The Fileupload And Then Retrieve The Data?

Load CSV data and then stored in a database, but I need to save storage space vary according to 3 column.

Web Forms :: Reading Text File Into Multi-line Text Box

Oct 12, 2010

I have an input type, so a text box which has a browse button next to it. When it is clicked, the file that is selected has it's full path placed into the text box.

<input type="file" runat="server" id="txtFilename" style="width:400px" />

I don't want the file to be uploaded to the website. I just want to contents of the file read and placed in a textbox all with one click on the browse button.

VS 2008 - Reading Contents Of A Text File Into Text Box On Form

Jul 13, 2011

I'm trying to read the contents of a text file into a text box on my form. When I run the following code, nothing happens.

VB.NET Code:
Protected Sub lbLogs_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles lbLogs.SelectedIndexChanged       
For Each li As ListItem In lbLogs.Items           
If li.Selected Then                Using sw As New StreamReader(li.Value)                   
txtLog.Text = sw.ReadToEnd                     sw.Close()                End Using            End If        Next    End Sub

I populate the ListBox with ListItems and each ListItem's Value property holds the full path to the file. But, I removed all of that and just put txtLog.Text = "test" inside of the "is selected" block.

Localization :: Reading A CSV File Created By Excel?

May 27, 2010

I am reading a CSV file created by Excel. the string I am reading needs to be encoded (it shows small boxes instead of hebrew characters) so I wrote a lil routine to convert the string -

Function encodeName(ByVal name As String) As String
Dim src As Encoding = Encoding.UTF8
Dim dest As Encoding = Encoding.Default
Dim srcBytes() As Byte
srcBytes = src.GetBytes(name)
Dim asciiBytes() As Byte = Encoding.Convert(src, dest, srcBytes)
Dim mychars(dest.GetCharCount(asciiBytes) - 1) As Char
dest.GetChars(asciiBytes, 0, asciiBytes.Length, mychars, 0)
Dim asciiString As New String(mychars)
End Function

From what I read FileStream.ReadLine reads the text with encoding UTF8 so I try to convert from UTF8 to Encoding.Default buy instead of little boxes I get question marks.
