Read excel with 1+ million rows using C#

prasad 1 Reputation point

Hi All,
I have a requirement to read the excel which has 1+ million rows and based on some column names inside the excel, i need it to write onto a pdf file.
when i have considered a windows desktop appln, seems, its not feasible.
so, thought of building the code using C# . console, which reads the excel from a file system loc.
But my question is whether how can i do this ? because it will take 24+ hrs to complete this activity even if if i assume, it will take 1 sec to read a row in excel and load in datatable and generate the pdf!

please help, whats the approach here.
