I am quite new to this. Is there an example or some tips that anyone has for using https://www.syncfusion.com/products/file-formats/xlsio to open an excel file in to a grid? eg SFDataGrid

My target is to develop for Android / IOS, using Xamarin. 

My Excel will always have the same sheets of known name, and I'd like to be able to read specific sheets. I'm pretty lost at how to open an excel, read the data from a specific sheet and display it in a grid
