Read from Excel using X++ Code (AX7/ D365 for Operations)

Hi Friends,

Been long. Hope all is well. Work kept me busy.

Below is the code snippet which will be handy to read the data from excel using code in D365/ax 7

Please note that, in D365 SysExcel* classes have been deprecated.

Under your references node in solution explorer, add Microsoft.Office.InterOp.Excel reference

Use OfficeOpenXML namespace to achieve this. Improvise the below snippet based on your need.

using System.IO;

using OfficeOpenXml;

using OfficeOpenXml.ExcelPackage;

using OfficeOpenXml.ExcelRange;


class SRReadFromExcel_D365


    public static void main(Args _args)


        System.IO.Stream            stream;

        ExcelSpreadsheetName        sheeet;

        FileUploadBuild             fileUpload;

        DialogGroup                 dlgUploadGroup;

        FileUploadBuild             fileUploadBuild;

        FormBuildControl            formBuildControl;

        Dialog                      dialog = new Dialog(“Import the data from Excel”);


        dlgUploadGroup          = dialog.addGroup(“@SYS54759”);

        formBuildControl        = dialog.formBuildDesign().control(;

        fileUploadBuild         = formBuildControl.addControlEx(classstr(FileUpload), ‘Upload’);;



        if ( && dialog.closedOk())


            FileUpload fileUploadControl     = dialog.formRun().control(dialog.formRun().controlId(‘Upload’));

            FileUploadTemporaryStorageResult fileUploadResult = fileUploadControl.getFileUploadResult();


            if (fileUploadResult != null && fileUploadResult.getUploadStatus())


                stream = fileUploadResult.openResult();

                using (ExcelPackage Package = new ExcelPackage(stream))


                    int                         rowCount, i;


                    ExcelWorksheet  worksheet   = package.get_Workbook().get_Worksheets().get_Item(1);

                    OfficeOpenXml.ExcelRange    range       = worksheet.Cells;

                    rowCount                  = worksheet.Dimension.End.Row – worksheet.Dimension.Start.Row + 1;


                    for (i = 2; i<= rowCount; i++)


                        info(range.get_Item(i, 1).value);

                        info(range.get_Item(i, 2).value);






                error(“Error here”);

    Hi Sreenath;
    When I try using OfficeOpenXml, I am getting this error message “The type or namespace name ‘OfficeOpenXml’ could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)”

    While writing the code, I am able to use and reference OfficeOpenXml – but the build gives this message. Any ideas?

    I am using Visual Studio 2015.
