I want to open and read an Excel file, I have done with some help but when I use it is opening also the Office Excel program along with the Excel sheet, how can I open and read without open the Excel itself also?

If you do not want to use Office Interop then you will have to go find a library that reads Excel files without the Interop.

If you want to read a content of text file, what do you do? You open it. Am i right?

The question is to vague to answer it.

First of all, you can't read MS Excel file without opening it (even if you use third party software), unless... you use ADO.NET query.
