If you use MS Access or Ms Excel as database then their are 4 types of options are their

2.Open Exclusively
3.Open Read Only
4.Open Read Only and Exclusively

While you are doing modification,insertion or deletion in the database
you should open in open mode only .

while you are doing these operations, if you already open the db or any other application use it exclusively or read only you cant access it, you will get this error.

my code is
protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (fpExcel.FileName.ToString() != string.Empty)
            string filepath = Server.MapPath("UploadFiles");
            fpExcel.SaveAs(filepath + "\\" + fpExcel.FileName.Split('\\')[fpExcel.FileName.Split('\\').Length - 1]);
            gvwReport.DataSource = GetExcelData(filepath);

    private DataTable GetExcelData(string filepath)
        string oledbConnectionString = string.Empty;
        OleDbConnection conn = null;
        oledbConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" + filepath + "; Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;";
        conn = new OleDbConnection(oledbConnectionString);
        if (conn.State == ConnectionState.Closed)
        OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand("Select * from [Sheet1$]",conn);
      OleDbDataAdapter objAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter();
      objAdapter.SelectCommand = command;
        DataSet objDataset = new DataSet();  
       objAdapter.Fill(objDataset, "ExcelDataTable");
        return objDataset.Tables[0];  

on opening the connection i get above error!
