How to perform jQuery upload xls file?


Yes. Xls file is uploading is possible on the web like any other kind of file. If you want to use Jquery, you can find many tutorials across the web. The best place to search for it is the Jquery site itself. Like any other Javascript framework, Jquery also uses a hidden IFrame for file upload.

If you want to upload only one .xls file, you need to validate it before uploading. Following is a code snippet for validation,

$("#form").bind("submit", function(){

  var ext = $('#file').val().split('.').pop().toLowerCase();

  if($.inArray(ext, ['xls']) == -1) {

    alert('invalid extension!');
