The following is the code that i have. On debugging it shows two errors:
Bytescout.spreadsheet is a 'namespace'; but is used like a 'type'.

The following is the code:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
namespace Bytescout.Spreadsheet.Demo.Csharp.ExportTo2DArray
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            const string inputFile = @"data.xls";

            // Open and load spreadsheet
            Spreadsheet spreadsheet = new Spreadsheet(); //**error in this line

            // Get the data from the spreadsheet
            string[,] data = spreadsheet.ExportTo2DArray();

            // Close spreadsheet

            // Display data in data table
            for (int i = 0; i < data.GetLength(0); i++)
                for (int j = 0; j < data.GetLength(1); j++)
                    Console.Write(data[i, j] + " ");

            // Pause

The compiler identify Spreadsheet as namespace because of this - namespace Bytescout.Spreadsheet.Demo.Csharp.ExportTo2DArray...
What Spreadsheet did you meant?

Just change your namespace to something more sensible, and different from the type names you are trying to use in the program.

Since you paid a lot of money to license this commercial product, and your code here is directly copied from their web-site [^], why don't you submit a support ticket ? If you are using a "trial" version, is it possible the trial has expired ?

The most common cause of the kind of error you report would be that you do not have a proper reference set to a necessary dll. In Visual Studio Solutions Explorer open 'References and examine what is there; if necessary select 'Add Reference from its context menu and do the right thing to find the required dll.

Try putting this in the 'using statements:

using ByteCount;

And see if that compiles.

The really nice thing that for a starting price of $500 one should expect working samples...That code on the site does not work at all - and you do not need a compile to tell that...

Yes i did copy the code. But the code gave errors. So i posted it here.

The syntax definitely makes you wonder, but keeping in mind that .NET will give you enough rope to hang yourself and compile this:

namespace YourFamily.YourMother.YourFather.YourSiblings.AllTheRelatives

You gotta consider the potential the code might work in spite of ...
