$target_dir = 'uploads/';
$target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["filepath"]["name"]);
$imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION);

require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/Includes/Classes/PHPExcel/IOFactory.php';

$inputFileType = PHPExcel_IOFactory::identify($target_file);

$objReader = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createReader($inputFileType);

You first need to upload the file before the read line: $target_dir = 'uploads/'; $target_file = $target_dir . basename($_FILES["filepath"]["name"]); $imageFileType = pathinfo($target_file,PATHINFO_EXTENSION); move_uploaded_file($_FILES["filepath"]["tmp_name"], $target_file); // rest of your code
