Hi,<BR>In my asp page I am reading an excel file, I want to import the data from that Excel file to my database. I am using ADO to read the data from the specific worksheet. After creating the recordset if I print the rs.Field().type, for some fields the .Type is showing as "202" (which is adVarWChar 202 Null-terminated Unicode character string ), and some fields it is showing "5" (which is adDouble 5 Double precision floating-point). For the fields with 202 and containing numeric values the amount is not getting converted to culture specific format. How can I change the .Type for the recordset?<BR><BR>thanks in advance
