hai all,
I used following code for reading excel files.but when am reading from excel files it showing exception like "Microsoft odbc manager data source name too long".but this problem not arising,when am running the same code in some computers.In some machines it shows exception.Is it coming due to any dll file missing?.please give me suggestions.
String myDB =
"jdbc dbc river={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};DBQ=C:/My Documents/";
//+ "DriverID=22;READONLY=false";
Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection(myDB,"","");
