Insert cell data in an Excel file using OLEDB

Without using Excel Object we can insert , edit , delete , select etc. in cell content of an Excel file using OLEDB in VB.NET . Here we are using OleDbConnection , OleDbDataAdapter , DataSet for doing these operations in an Excel file. You have to import System.Data in the project for doing these operations . For add new content in the cell or insert a new content , We can use the INSERT command like in SQL Operations.

sample UPDATE sql

sql = "Insert into [Sheet1$] (id,name) values('5','e')"

The follwoing picture shows before and after update of the Sheet.


Imports System.Data
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim MyConnection As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
            Dim myCommand As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
            Dim sql As String

            MyConnection = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection _
            ("provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" + _
            "'c:\testfile.xls';Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;")

            myCommand.Connection = MyConnection
            sql = "Insert into [Sheet1$] (id,name) values('5','e')"
            myCommand.CommandText = sql
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
        MsgBox("Row Added ")
    End Sub
End Class
