How do I read individual cell data from an excel sheet? I know how to extract the data from the .xls file and bind it to a gridview. But how do i extract data from a particular cell or column and save it in a local variable for instance.

I need this because i need to extract data from excel and insert it into a MySql database.

Never to old to learn! Also look for the other "rules" and tips on how to post correctly.
