Hi every one. This is my first participation here.

I love NeoBook (although not being updated for long long time), and I love this awesome community, where every one likes to help everyone.

I'm building an application where it must first get the data from excel file, then it do its stuff. I've tried to open .xls files with NeoBookDBPro, but after multiple errors and tries, I found that the only way to open an excel file with DPPro is when the file is already open in the background! otherwise it won't open. This is unwanted situation where the connection to the data source should always be transparent in the background.

Any solution for this please?

Thanks in advance.

Majed:

1) Is there any access restriction associated with the file in question ? ... try and use a file with access to all users.

2) Post your code (dbpOpendatabase etc.) ... and the error result being received.
