how to read the Sheet name present in any Excel file ?

327 views (last 30 days)
I am working on a script , that will read the data present in an excel file. The sheet is an standard template one . There are many Sheets present in a excel file (and will vary depending upon the various products that we have ... and i am trying to make a general script that will work over all excel files).
Is there any way to find out the names of the sheets in the excel file ?
I have tried 'xlsread' , but that didn't help much
is there any command that will help me fetch the total number of sheets and their names ?
Regards, Ajay

The perfect command is : I tried other command mentioned above ..doesn't work anymore.
[status,sheets] = xlsfinfo(filename)
filename should be written within ' ' (single apostrophe)
