Yesterday I was working on one of our internal projects and one of the requirements was to read some data from Excel/CSV files. I did a “Google with Bing” and found some interesting projects on CodeProject. But one of the answers on StackOverflow pointed to FileHelpers. Just a wonderful little utility that can read both Excel and CSV files for me in just a few lines! I installed it using NuGet of course. Rarely have I been so happy for something so small!
