Thanks a lot. This is working great. I having an excel file having about 10 sheet's. but I need to read data from three sheets alone. I don't want to read rest of the sheets. Is there any better way to do this? I need to do this coz, I'm optimizing the performance in my application.

Thanks in advance.

You are probably best using the IDataReader interface rather than the AsDataset method on IExcelDataReader. That way you can skip over sheets you aren't interested in with the NextResult method.

Thanks Ian for the answer.

I have inherited the source code and added a overloaded method AsDataSet(string sheetName) to read specific sheet.
and checking this condition in the foreach of the sheet reading. if (sheetName != _workbook.Sheets[ind].Name)) continue;
