Additional information: Invalid cell name when loading spreadsheet

I have a spreadsheet that will open in excel but not from the Aspose.Cells library.

I get the following error in the constructor of the workbook:
Exception thrown: ‘Aspose.Cells.CellsException’ in Aspose.Cells.dll

Additional information: Invalid cell name

Note: I am converting from using the infragistics excel library to using the Aspose library. This spreadsheet was written using the infragistics api.


Thanks for your query.

Please share your sample file and code snippet with us for our testing. We will reproduce the problem and provide our feedback after analysis. Also let us know the version of Aspose.Cells library which is used for testing.

I do not see a link to upload files. How do I add a file to a support case?


Apparently there is no issue and file upload icon is there while creating new topic or replying an existing thread. However you can share files by uploading them to any third party file sharing server like Dropbox etc. and share the link here.
