Hey guys and gals,

Question for you all - have we ever managed to open an 'Open Office' file from ASP.NET?

Like reading from an Excel file (.XLS) we can use OleDB to read the contents of a file into, say, a dataset - can this be done with the Open Office formats?

Any advice/pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Open Office uses a very open XML document format. You can read and write OpenXML documents in teh same way as you would any other XML file (eg. System.Xml.XmlDocument or using LINQ)

You can find further documentation here:
