An example for Excel 2007

You should create in your own Excel File in:
Formulas -> Name manager (I don't know exactly that name in english), selecting your table, and bind a name for that, for example, myTable.

In your application, you select again the sheet:
OleDbCommand objCmdSelect = new OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM [sheet$]", objConn);

OleDbDataAdapter objAdapter1 = new OleDbDataAdapter();
objAdapter1.SelectCommand = objCmdSelect;
DataSet objDataset1 = new DataSet();

But here you can select a table:
objAdapter1.Fill(objDataset1, "myTable");
