    Reading Data From Excel file

    Hi
    If any one knows how to read data from a MSExcel file which is organised to have Column names as its first row and the data in the subsequent rows

    I have tried reading it but I am getting a String as the return value which does not serve the purpose

    Thanks

    Can you take the string and convert it with the Val function?

    number nMyValue=Val(sRetrievedString)

    If you are using ODBC, all the values in Excel will come in as strings. This means you have to convert the datatype by using Val or using a typecast operator for other datatypes.
