A few observations:

1. There is faster way to read data. I experimented with reading from .CSV file, and found it at least 2 times faster. Of course, you need to take care of "escaped" characters, such as comma and double quotation mark. You also need to eliminate double quotation marks surrounding some fields. And, depending on the way you read the file, you might need to replace "\n" with "\r\n".

2. I observed faster reading when full file path is specified.

3. Close Excel if your file is opened in Excel. Otherwise you will get an exception. Sometimes closing Excel is not enough. You need to kill it using Task Manager.

4. Code below lists all the Excel worksheets.
List<string> tabs = new List<string>();
foreach (DataRow row in schema.Rows)
if (row["TABLE_NAME"].ToString().EndsWith("$"))
