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.
The attached code, the oledb part, is giving me a blank web page saying it cant connect on my local dev server. I have another app with the same code, in fact I copied it and changed the db names. The one I copied from works fine.
I got an error about OleDB. I just want my excel file import to Gridview. Here is my code.
string connstr = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.Oledb.4.0;Data Source=C:a.xls;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;IMEX=1"; OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr); string strSQL = "Select * from [Sheet1$]"; OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn); DataSet ds = new DataSet(); OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd); da.Fill(ds); GridView1.DataSource = ds; GridView1.DataBind();
When i build project there is no error but when i run this project i got an error like this:
System.ArgumentException:Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 47. Line 21: string connstr = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.Oledb.4.0;Data Source=C:a.xls;Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;IMEX=1"; Line 22: Line 23: OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr);
We're converting a Classic ASP site to an ASP.NET site. One function was to upload a 'template' of data in CSV format for importing into the database. There were several different record types in there (the first field always indentifies the type of data).
The task was to get the CSV into a DataTable so it could be validated (new project is to have MUCH better validation rules)
The code seemed pretty straightforward - watered down (taking out comments, Try/Catch, etc) it is as follows:
Dim da As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter Dim cn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strDirectory & ";" & "Extended Properties=""Text;HDR=No;FMT=Delimited;""") Dim cd As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM " & strCSVFilename, cn) cn.Open() da.SelectCommand = cd da.Fill(dtData)
The DataTable (dtData) is populated, but only starting with the second line of the CSV file DESPITE the fact that "HDR=No" is in the connection string. What am I missing here?
i am trying to create connection using OLEDB connection in my app. but i am not able to create the connection as in datasource i want to use Server.mappath, but cudn't find the right method to use it. i am trying to make connection with Access database file. following is code i have tried:
string path = Server.MapPath("~/uploadaccess/Production.mdb"); string ConnectionString = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("~/uploadaccess/Production.mdb")&";"; and also OleDbConnection myConnection = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & path&";"); and tried this OleDbConnection myConnection = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("~/uploadaccess/Production.mdb"));
and this is the error i am getting:
Operator '&' cannot be applied to operands of type 'string' and 'string'
I am developing one web application using MS Access database using oledb connection.Previously i checked the same application is works well in the same machine.Now Today i checked they provide "Unspecified Error". And also Provide the following Exception:
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Unspecified errorat System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionInternal..ctor(OleDbConnectionString constr, OleDbConnection connection) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnectionFactory.CreateConnection(DbConnectionOptions options, Object poolGroupProviderInfo, DbConnectionPool pool, DbConnection owningObject) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.CreateNonPooledConnection(DbConnection owningConnection, DbConnectionPoolGroup poolGroup)at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionFactory.GetConnection(DbConnection owningConnection) at System.Data.ProviderBase.DbConnectionClosed.OpenConnection(DbConnection outerConnection, DbConnectionFactory connectionFactory) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection.Open() at clsOledbClass.opencon() in c:inetpubwwwrootcheckNPCApp_CodeclsOledbClass.cs:line 64
I am using the following connection string for connecting database:
I am using asp.net oledb to export information to excel file. I encounter problems when the information to export becomes too big, in this case the code I have given below, the excel file generated becomes an empty spreadsheet. If I changed the loop to 1123 for insertion of the rows. The generated excel file is fine, 1125 rows, and 4 columns shown. A test program in windows form is also working fine regardless of how many rows. Code has been simplified, "information ..." in the sql insertion command represents 1803 characters.
ExcelObjConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Ace.OLEDB.12.0;" & _ "Data Source=" & fileName & ";Extended Properties=Excel 12.0 XML" ExcelConnection = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(ExcelObjConn) ExcelConnection.Open() Try SqlCommand = "CREATE TABLE ABC ([row1] text, [row2] text, [row3] text, [row4] text)" ExcelCommand = New OleDb.OleDbCommand(SqlCommand, ExcelConnection) ExcelCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() ExcelCommand.Dispose() For i As Integer = 0 To 1124 SqlCommand = "Insert into ABC ([row1], [row2], [row3], [row4]) Values ('information...', 'information ...', 'information ...', 'information ...')" ExcelCommand = New OleDb.OleDbCommand(SqlCommand, ExcelConnection) ExcelCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() ExcelCommand.Dispose() Next Catch ex As Exception Finally If ExcelConnection IsNot Nothing Then ExcelConnection.Close() ExcelConnection.Dispose() End If End Try
I couldn't find a solution to my problem as well. What I did eventually was to run the process using another separate windows service. The code works perfectly fine running from a windows form or service program, but not asp.net, not sure why.
