I am trying to load excel sheet data into grid using dataset. but I am getting this error "The Microsoft Access database engine could not find the object 'Sheet1$'."
below is the code. could anyone tell me tell where i am doing wrong. the excel sheet I am trying to load already has Sheet1. Also connection string is correct.
            Dim comm As OleDbCommand = New OleDbCommand("Select * from [Sheet1$]", oledbConn)
            Dim oleda As New OleDbDataAdapter(comm)
            oleda.SelectCommand() = comm
            Dim ds As New DataSet()
            gdExcel.DataSource = ds.Tables(0).DefaultView
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("error", vbInformation)

Are you sure that the sheet name is "Sheet1"? If it says anything but that it will not be found.

You are trying to open an Excel file using an Access data-access component. It's obvious that it cannot work :)

it depend on the ms office version
if the excel file is 2010 and the processor is 64 bit you need a new jet driver

If "JetVersion" = 8 Then
excelConnectionString = String.Format("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source={0};Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;", m_filename)
excelConnectionString = String.Format("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source={0};Extended Properties=Excel 12.0;", m_filename)
End If
