        Dim DtSet As System.Data.DataSet
        Dim MyCommand As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
        MyConnection = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source='C:\Retro Racing Et. 1 - Regularitate - laptimes.xls';Extended Properties='Excel 12.0;HDR=YES'")
        MyCommand = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("select `Time of Day`,Lap,`Lap Tm` from [Sheet1$] ", MyConnection)

        MyCommand.TableMappings.Add("Table", "RAW")
        DtSet = New System.Data.DataSet
        MyCommand.Fill(DtSet)
        DataGridView4.DataSource = DtSet.Tables(0)
