How-to: Reference embedded Excel spreadsheet (C#)


  • In Visual Studio 2008, how do you access an embedded spreadsheet (.xls) file? I'm reading in two .xls files to create two data table (OleDB), and I'd like a way to "hard code" the file into the project for internal referencing (instead of having to reference a path/directory).

    Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!
