using ICSharpCode;
using Excel;

namespace datamining2
class MainClass
    public static void Main (string[] args)
        string filePath = "/home/khaled/Documents/datamining.xls";
        FileStream stream = File.Open(filePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
        IExcelDataReader excelReader = ExcelReaderFactory.CreateBinaryReader(stream);

        while (excelReader.Read())

Use ".xlsx" extension instead of ".xls" in your file path.

And I want to ask the developers, how can save the file in xls format? Is it even possible?
