Passing Data to a Cell in Excel

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a webpage that is created in Visual Studio 2008 and programmed in C#.

I have a web form that prompts the user to enter a value into a text box.  For now, I do not have any validation on that field (I will be adding that later).

I need to pass the value that the user has entered to cell C1 of the excel spreadsheet (user_info.xls).

I understand that using excel is not ideal, but unforutnately need to try to make this work with the excel spreadsheet.

I do not have any code for this yet, because I honestly do not know how to begin.

The action of poulating the excel spreadsheet will be intialized from the On Click event of a Submit button.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,

If I do the following, I can update a cell in Excel from SQL Express 2008 with the data I want:

SET @strsql = 'UPDATE OPENROWSET(''Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0'', ''Excel 8.0;Database=' + @strFileName + ''',''SELECT * FROM [MySheet]'') SET [' + @Column + ']=''' + @Variable + ''' WHERE RowID=''' + @RowID + ''''
