Step 1: Use Nuget package manager to install LinqToExcel
as shown under
PM> Install-Package LinqToExcel
Step 2: Next write the below code
Private Sub ReadEmployeesFromExcel()
Dim excelPath As String = "D:\EmployeeRecords.xlsx"
Dim sheetName As String = "Sheet1"
Dim excelFile = New ExcelQueryFactory(excelPath)
(From a In excelFile.Worksheet(sheetName)a).ToList().Foreach(Function(e) Console.WriteLine(e("EmpID") + "-----" + e("EmpName") + "-------" + e("Address")))
We are initializing an ExcelQueryFactory object where we are passing the excel file path and then from the object that we receive, we are reading in the Linq way and finally printing teh records by using the Foreach() method.
