        Dim MyCommand As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
        MyConnection = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='I:\Sales Analysis\Vecta\vecta customersmb.xls';Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;")

        DtSet = New System.Data.DataSet
        DGVCustImport.DataSource = DtSet.Tables(0)

Hi Mike,

If your Excelsheet was new, every blank cell has a NULL value which will create an error. Furthermore I do not see who you tell the routine until which row it has to read.

Good luck, Rene
