Hi Jeff,

 

I need a Flex page(a swf file which i will add on the vf page) - with a browse button and a datagrid 

 

So from this page user can  browse and select a excel file - which in result should show the records of excel in the Datagrid 

 

There is a custom object in my case in which i want to import all the records from datagrid - once imported in Datagrid of Flex

 

I tried using http://as3xls.mwudka.com/ExcelViewer/

 

But it does not executes properly

 

Is there any other way

 

Thanks

Nikil,

 

The problem is that in order to read the Excel file you are going to need to upload it to the server. Unfortunately Salesforce.com doesn't allow this unless. I'm not sure if you could upload it to S3 and read it from there. 

 

I've never heard of anyone that has solved this issue before.

 

Thanks
