Angular 2+ upload bulk data with excel file

Install the “xlsx” npm package.

$ npm install xlsx

The library can be imported directly from TS code with:

import * as XLSX from \'xlsx\';

This demo uses an array of arrays (type Array<Array<any>>) as the core state. The component template includes a file input element, a table that updates with the data, and a button to export the data.

Then use this code sample on the input file and set the onChange function. it will give the excel data as a JSON format.

/* <input type=\"file\" (change)=\"onFileChange($event)\" multiple=\"false\" /> */
/* ... (within the component class definition) ... */
  onFileChange(evt: any) {
    /* wire up file reader */
    const target: DataTransfer = <DataTransfer>(;
    if (target.files.length !== 1) throw new Error(\'Cannot use multiple files\');
    const reader: FileReader = new FileReader();
    reader.onload = (e: any) => {
      /* read workbook */
      const bstr: string =;
      const wb: XLSX.WorkBook =, {type: \'binary\'});

      /* grab first sheet */
      const wsname: string = wb.SheetNames[0];
      const ws: XLSX.WorkSheet = wb.Sheets[wsname];

      /* save data */ = <AOA>(XLSX.utils.sheet_to_json(ws, {header: 1}));
