I have many times int the past been asked to import/export data from an excel spreadsheet. In the past I have used Interop and OLEDB, but I found this to be a simple dll which allowed me to roll this stuff out a bit faster. This a very simple, lightweight DLL which allows you to read from an excel spreadsheet without Interop and installing an obsolete OLEDB dll.
