Read/Edit Excel 2007 File Contents using EPPlus

In my previous articles related to EPPlus I have shown you that how you can generate Basic and Advance reports using EPPlus. Many people has asked me that how we can read the contents of an excel file using EPPlus. This is actually quite simple task. Here is the code to do this:-
using (ExcelPackage p = new ExcelPackage())
    using (FileStream stream = new FileStream("92b69c48-dda7-4544-bdcc-c6925a5f1bec.xlsx"FileMode.Open))
        ExcelWorksheet ws = p.Workbook.Worksheets["Sample Sheet"];
        int rowIndex = 2;
        string text = ws.Cells[rowIndex, 1].Value.ToString(); //Read Text
        MessageBox.Show("Text in [" + rowIndex + ",1]=" + text);
        string comment = ws.Comments[0].Text; // Access Comments
        MessageBox.Show("Comments = " + comment);
        string pictureName = ws.Drawings[0].Name;// Access Picture
        MessageBox.Show("Picture = " + pictureName);

Things are very simple so I am not sharing more details. You can use above code to edit your existing excel files as well.
