    for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
    Excel.Range range = worksheet.get_Range("A"+i.ToString(), "J" + i.ToString());
    System.Array myvalues = (System.Array)range.Cells.Value;

    Step-1: Include the connection string for the EXCEL file containing the filename and Provider settings.

    string connectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" + "Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("Filename.xls") + ";" + "Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;";

    Step-2: Create a new connection object and open it for processing.

    OleDbConnection objConn = new OleDbConnection(connectionString);

    Step-3: Create a command object for querying and pass that command with the connection object created.

    String strConString = "SELECT firstColumnName FROM [Sheet1$]";
    //where date = CDate('" + DateTime.Today.ToShortDateString() + "')";
    OleDbCommand objCmdSelect = new OleDbCommand(strConString, objConn);

    Step-4: Here, in this example i am going to use DataSet for reading and holding the data, for which i am creating a Data Adapter Object.

    // Create new OleDbDataAdapter that is used to build a DataSet
    // based on the preceding SQL SELECT statement.
    OleDbDataAdapter objAdapter1 = new OleDbDataAdapter();
    // Pass the Select command to the adapter.
    objAdapter1.SelectCommand = objCmdSelect;
    // Create new DataSet to hold information from the worksheet.
    DataSet objDataset1 = new DataSet();

    Step-5: Now, fill the data from the EXCEL file by querying with the command object and store them into the Dataset created.

    // Fill the DataSet with the information from the worksheet.
    objAdapter1.Fill(objDataset1, "ExcelData");

    Step-6: Process the data for displaying with the Dataset, which you can set as datasource for many ASP.NET controls.

    for (int i = 0; i < objDataset1.Tables[0].Rows.Count; i++)
    document.Write("Data: " + objDataset1.Tables[0].Rows[i].ItemArray[0].ToString() + "

    Step-7: As we are at the end, important thing is to Close the connection.

    // Clean up objects.
