Laravel-Excel is a popular package to handle Excel spreadsheets in Laravel. To select a specific sheet in an Excel file, you can use the sheet() method.

Here is an example of how to select a sheet using Laravel-Excel:

php
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Facades\Excel; Excel::selectSheetsByIndex(0)->load('example.xls', function($reader) { $results = $reader->get(); // Do something with the data });

In this example, the selectSheetsByIndex() method is used to select the first sheet in the Excel file by its index (zero-based). If you want to select a sheet by its name, you can use the selectSheet() method instead:

php
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Facades\Excel; Excel::selectSheet('Sheet1')->load('example.xls', function($reader) { $results = $reader->get(); // Do something with the data });

In this example, the selectSheet() method is used to select the sheet named 'Sheet1' in the Excel file.

Once you have selected the sheet, you can use the load() method to load the data from the Excel file. The get() method can then be used to retrieve the data as an array or collection that you can work with in your application.
