Dear Expert's,

I am Doing a .Net winForms Application. Now am stuck with a Problem. When i Import Excel, Everything is working fine expect one thing.

I didn't get the correct datas when i import (Only the time HDR = YES)

Eg: Excel Datas = "Invoice No."
After Import = "Invoice No#"

Dot(.) is changed to Hash (#).

And i need header thats y am using HDR = yes in connection string.

Please help me to get the correct datas when i import.

My connection string

connectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & fileName & ";Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;IMEX=1;HDR=YES;"""


Thanks and Regards

I have just tried this and get exactly the same result, but I don't know why it happens.

I think you use OLEDB... If yes, then connection string is OK, but you need to change a query. Below query should works perfect:

SELECT [Invoice No#] AS [Invoice No.], [Field2], [Field3]
FROM [Sheet1$]
