Can I find some open source library for accessing (reading only is ok) OLE Storage like doc or xls files in c#?
You can use my open source (MPL) library OpenMCDF for a 100% .net implementation of COM structured storage. A sample COM structured storage file viewer is also available as a usage sample of the library.
thanks dude. Will definitely try.
Cannot see any code to get Author, summary, etc :(
+1 Nice work! :) Some improvement points: the CHM file does not open on my machine and it might be good to add some basic example code on how to use it here. :)
Any chance there is an implementation for parsing SummaryInformation streams? : sedna-soft.de/articles/summary-information-stream. That would be really cool. :)
An excellent article describes the usage.
COM structured storage from .NET
OleDbConnection can handle structured storage as long as the appropriate OLE DB driver is installed on the machine your app is running on.
Extended Properties="Excel 12.0 Xml;HDR=YES";
ConnectionStrings.com has a whole host of other Data Sources that you can access via OLE with the built-in libraries.
I want to do it with solidworks files :) Thanks for that info :)
I have a binary structured text file, can I use OleDbConnection to read this file?,
