C# - How to Create Table per Excel File and Import all Sheet's Data Dynamically in C#

Scenario: Download Script

You are working as C# or dot Net Developer, you need to write a program that should create a Table if not exists per Excel File and load all sheet's data to it. As we are going to load all the sheets from single Excel file to a table, sheets should have same columns on each Excel file.

Here are our sample files.

            string LogFolder = @"C:\Log\";

                        if (drSheet["TABLE_NAME"].ToString().Contains("$"))
                            sheetname = drSheet["TABLE_NAME"].ToString();
                            //Load DataTable with Sheet Data

                                if (i != dt.Columns.Count - 1)
                                    tableDDL += "[" + dt.Columns[i].ColumnName + "] " + "NVarchar(max)" + ",";

                            SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(tableDDL, SQLConnection);

                            //Load the data from DataTable to SQL Server Table.
                            SqlBulkCopy blk = new SqlBulkCopy(SQLConnection);
                            blk.DestinationTableName = "[" + filename + "]";
            catch (Exception exception)
                // Create Log File for Errors
                using (StreamWriter sw = File.CreateText(LogFolder
                    + "\\" + "ErrorLog_" + datetime + ".log"))





I executed above C# code and it created tables from sample files as shown below and load the data from multiple sheet's to them.

Lets run query on created tables and take a look if data is loaded from Excel files correctly.
