Reading data from excel file and adding it to a dropdownlist using JQuery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    I have a requirement in which I need to browse to an excel file(select the file), read data from file and add the data to a dropdown list. This functionality I need to achieve through JQuery (from client side only), my website is made of ASP.NET MVC. 

    Is this possible to achieve this functionality using JS files of JQuery only?

    If above functionality is not possible using JQuery JS files only, can you please mention what is other ideal way of doing it from client side(using other JS file/s along with JQuery JS files). Please note other JS file/s should be open source only as I am not having the option of purchasing a software, I am having option to just include/use the JS file/s in my solution without purchasing it.
