C# code

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OleDb;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Xml.Linq;

namespace WebApplication6
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
string file = Server.MapPath("msxcel.xls");
string connStr = string.Format(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Excel2003OleDBConnection"], file);
DataTable table = new DataTable();

using (OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connStr))
string sheet = @"SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]";
// to avoid error write the sheet name in square bracket
using (OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(sheet, conn))
using (OleDbDataAdapter ad = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd))
GridView1.DataSource = table;

you should need to copy below code in web.config file

<add key="Excel2003OleDBConnection" value="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source={0};Extended Properties=&quot;Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;IMEX=1&quot;"/>
<add key="Excel2007OleDBConnection" value="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source={0};Extended Properties=&quot;Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES;IMEX=1&quot;"/>

you should need to create a ms Excel file in Solution explorer whic name is msxcel.xls

Enjoy it.
