After saving xlsx the document ist WriteProtected


I have an xlsx file which is not protected (workbook.Settings.IsWriteProtected returns false). Now i save the file as xlsx and open it again, I have not made any changes on the document. When I check the workbook.Settings.IsWriteProtected property, it returns true now.

I am using Aspose.Cells version

Is this a know bug?
Thank you for your help.

Regards Bernhard


Please use the latest version: Aspose.Cells for .NET v7.0.1.6
If you still find the issue, give us your template Excel files and sample code, we will look into your issue soon.

Thank you.

I tried it with the provided version Aspose.Cells for .NET v7.0.1.6 but i still get the issue as written above. I attached my test document.


I can see the issue using the following sample code with your template file.

Workbook wb = new Workbook(“e:\test2\Test.xlsx”);
MessageBox.Show(wb.Settings.IsWriteProtected.ToString()); //False --> OK

wb = new Workbook(“e:\test2\outTest_as.xlsx”);
MessageBox.Show(wb.Settings.IsWriteProtected.ToString());//True --> Issue

I have logged a ticket for your issue with an id: CELLSNET-31277. We will figure it out soon.

Thank you.
