Read the CSV Data and Save the Data in DataSet

Posted By:Lakhan Pal Garg       Posted Date: October 05, 2009    Points: 10    Category: ADO.NET    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

In this first we will read the data from csv file using the select query and load the data into a dataset.

Query To read data from CSV file: 
SELECT * FROM [test.csv]

OLEDB Connectionstring:
 @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=E:\Lakhan\Projects\Testweb\Test\;Extended

if you want to consider first row as column then mention HDR=Yes otherwise no.
using System.Data.OleDb;
for(Int32 i=0; i
       ColumnName + "");
the above code is used to print all the column names

Sample Code:
using System.Data.OleDb;
private void ReadCSVFile()
 string cnStr = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data
 OleDbConnection ExcelConnection =
 new OleDbConnection(cnStr);
 OleDbCommand ExcelCommand = new OleDbCommand
 (@"SELECT * FROM [test.csv]",
 OleDbDataAdapter ExcelAdapter =
 new OleDbDataAdapter(ExcelCommand);
 DataSet dataSetFromCSV = new DataSet();
 for(Int32 i=0; i
     Columns[i].ColumnName + "");

CSV File's Content:
Customer Number,Last Name,First Name,Address,City,Province,
Postal Code,Balance10001,Smith,Dave,123 Parkside Ave.,London,
ON,N6J 4G6,125.3510002,Pearson,Anne,44 Northside Road,Toronto,
