Default Upload .xls file to SQL Server

I got so far as to take a file from my local machine to another directory on my C: drive:

Dim getmyFile As HttpPostedFile = myfile.PostedFile
If IsNothing(getmyFile) Then
   Label2.Text = "Please select a file to upload"
   Label2.Text = "Line 78"
   If getmyFile.ContentLength = 0 Then
     Label2.Text = "Cannot upload zero length file"
     Dim ServerFileName As String = Path.GetFileName(myfile.PostedFile.FileName)
     getmyFile.SaveAs("C:\TestSaving\" & ServerFileName)
     Label2.Text = "Successful upload to C:\TestSaving\" & ServerFileName
   End If
End If

...............now, what I need to do is take an .xls file and allow users to upload that into a specific table.
Any suggestions or samples/articles are more than welcome!

Once you have your Excel file on the server it all becomes relatively easy. Check out the Wrox book 'Beginning ASP.NET Databases Using VB.NET'. There are a couple great examples of how to use OleDBConnection objects to connect to an Excel file. Once you have the contents of your Excel file loaded into a DataSet object you can send it to SQL Server.
