    The xls is the old format for Excel documetns. The later versions Excel 2010 and 2013 use the xlsx format, which is basically a compressed OpenXml based document. If you really want to see it then download Open XML SDK 2.5 application - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=30425 and open the document.

    In this case you have to use Excel 2010/2013. Import the old xls file and save it as an xlsx-file. I am not saying you can import the file in Nav 2013 R2 but it is a good start.

    We had the same issue on one of the projects and used ADO to import the sheet. This is extremely fast.

    Vjeko helped me with the code.
