Excel to XDocument



I’m currently testing how to parse excel files (yes, that original shit from microsoft) the best way and recently came up with a thing that feels like the way to go. This is how it looks like:

This simply uses ExcelDataReader

Spread String not working correctly

Hey, this looks like a cool idea! ive tried to install the package via Nuget but i cant find the ExcelDataSet Node in ur Screenshot. What are the dependencies ?
Ive installed and enabled:
nuget install ExcelDataReader
nuget install ExcelDataReader.DataSet


Ah, maybe I’ve written that nodes in c#… Can have a look these days and share here.


VL.Excel.7z (441.0 KB)


Hey, thx sebl!

ive tried to open it in VL, ive copied the folder to: vvvv_50beta38.1_x64\lib\packs and it shows up as a VL Nuget. When i try to add it as dependency this error will show up:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly ‘VL.UI.Forms’ or one of its dependencies. Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.
File name: ‘VL.UI.Forms’

Ive added VL.UI and VL.UI Config via .NET Nuget but i still get the error.Also added as “Forward dependencies”


@gegenlicht and @sebl which versions do you use?


vvvv_50beta38.1_x64 @tonfilm


sebl is known for using latest alpha. you can check the vl version in the .vl document…


thx its working in latest alpha


works great, i’ve just put it to use in a little app. thanks!
