Excel with Excel without Excel... Seven Excel/XLS Libraries

Ginktage - 7 Libraries for Reading and Writing from/to Excel File in C#

Few months back , I was making an R&D on the possibilities of reading and writing to/from the Excel file from .NET (C#) . At that point of time , I came across various libraries and SDK’s available for Reading and Writing from Excel File in C# .

In this blog post ,I will list some of the libraries used for reading and writing from/to Excel sheet using C#. Note that some of the libraries are free/open source and few are commercial one’s.



If you've ever Automated/Inter-op'd Excel, you know that it can be "fun." The primary issue isn't the the Object Model, it's that it's COM and with .Net that can be a challenge to get the Releasing right. Then there's the license requirements, versions, etc.

So in short, if you don't need it, don't use it. As shown above, there's a number of libraries that you can use to read/write Excel files without having Excel installed...
