You could always map a network drive  to the document  library using the
\\server\path\ and use the mapped drive path  as your file  location for the data

But i am still confused how to do that
Please see the attached code and advice me how to do it.Also instead of using it
this way can i directly read  the excel  sheet from document  library

string selValue= "sites/"+"Motorola";

spGlobalAdmin = new SPGlobalAdmin();

SPVirtualServer virtualServer = spGlobalAdmin.OpenVirtualServer(new

SPSiteCollection collections = virtualServer.Sites;

SPSite site =collections[selValue];

foreach(SPWeb web  in site.AllWebs)


if(web.Name =="Reports")


SPWeb reportweb= site.AllWebs["Reports"];

SPFolderCollection folders= reportweb.Folders;

foreach(SPFolder folder in folders)


if(folder.Name == FolderList.SelectedItem.Value)


SPFolderCollection subfolders = folder.SubFolders;

foreach(SPFolder subfolder in subfolders)


SPFile file  = subfolder.Files[ExcelList.SelectedItem.Value];

FileInfo fileinfo = new FileInfo(file.Url);
