                        var fileName = Path.GetFileName(FileUpload1.FileName);

                        // get exstension of file
                        _strFileType = Path.GetExtension(FileUpload1.FileName).ToLower();

                        int fileExtPos = fileName.LastIndexOf(".");

                        string newfilename = fileName.Substring(0, fileExtPos);
                        _strNewFileName = newfilename + "___" + DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd_hh-mm-ss-ffff") + _strFileType;

                        // store the file inside ~/App_Data/uploads folder
                        string _strPath = Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/"), _strNewFileName);

                        string ListName = txtmpListName.Text;
                        string originalfilename = fileName;

how you are fetching data from excel file ?
Herman<T>.Instance 30-Aug-13 7:19am    
difference in fields in a row used?
empty row?

There is no limit for 7584 rows in Excel. It was 65K in previous version Excel 2007 but this less its not.
It seems that the new row you insert has the delimitor conflicts so its not able to get beyond that.
Try to take another excel with some other data but more rows. Or simply copy existing data again within that sheet (just select 10 existing and append)

Else post your excel file.

There's nothing wrong or missing with your code

The error is not with your web application, but with your excel file. The record present at row number 7584/7585 needs some testing. Ensure data in these 2 records are consistent with other records. To debug the error in these records, you can delete the 1st 7582 records and try uploading again.

As mentioned in other solution, there is no such limit while reading data from excel file.
