Import Excel Files

Import from File

To open an Excel file using Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control:

  1. Add the Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control to a web form.
  2. Import the Excel file by specifying the file path.
  3. Run the application.

When Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control is added to a web form, the control is automatically instantiated and added to the form with a default size. You don’t have to create an Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control object, all you have to do is drag and drop the control and start using it.

However, to load the content from an Excel file to Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control, you have to call the ImportExcelFile method to specify the path of the Excel file. After that, Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control will automatically find the file from the specified path and display its contents. A code snippet that loads the contents of an Excel file is provided below.

The above code snippet can be used any way you want. For example, to load an Excel file automatically when a web form loads, add this code to the form’s Page_Load event. If you want to open a file when a button is clicked, add a button to the web form and write the above code under the button’s Click event.

An Excel file is loaded when a button is clicked


Import from Stream

As well as opening Excel files from file, the Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control can load Excel files from a stream. Using file as a stream is a better approach to prohibit any kind of file access or sharing violation problems because this approach ensures closing all connections to the files by closing the stream.
