Hi everybody!

Please advise me some easy-to-use library to work with Excel in .NET. What I need to do:

1. Create workbook with multiple sheets.
2. Fill it with data.

Don't want to use standard built-in COM library to write lousy code like:

Excel.Workbook wb = 
    ThisApplication.Workbooks.OpenText("C:\\Test.txt", 
    Type.Missing, 3, Excel.XlTextParsingType.xlDelimited, 
    Excel.XlTextQualifier.xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote, 
    Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, True, 
    Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, 
    Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, 
    Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);

LINQ to Excel just retreives data and allows to perform queries.

Thanks in advance.

What version(s) of Excel are you supporting? The "lousy" COM code may be all you have.

It doesn't matter. I need generate at least some Excel version's file. I meant some wrapper for COM. I found different libraries but they generally suports queries but not creating.

I think you need to search here and on Google and I'm pretty sure you'll find what you need.

Excel interop is one of the few places where I'd recommend VB.NET over C# purely because of VB.NET's ability to call method signatures with optional parameters. If you're more comfortable in C#, you can just create a class library in VB to wrap the functionality you want to use and import the library into your C# project.

That being said, there's also this: Excel Reader[^]
