Hi to All,

Recently i was developed a WebService Application in In that i want read values from an Excel file (Which is already opened/running), Before creating virtual directory in IIS 5.1 it is working perfectly. But when i was created virtual directory in IIS i recieved an error while reading excel file (Which is already opened/running) is "The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file ''. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data." . Please let me know what is the problem i was facing. It is Urgent.

Thanks in Advance.

Because its taking time to read the whole file & keep file in open state.
Use "using" for disposing after completion of Reading from Excel.

Also check connection & file state before reading whether its closed or not.

Let me know if you still find difficulties.
