"Paste as Picture" in Aspose.Words

I have a table in Excel which uses the Orientation element of Excel’s Alignment functionality to create a table with angled headers.

This particular aspect of the cell formatting is lost when I select the table and paste it into the Word document. However, there is a “Paste as Picture” Paste Option which results in a document that looks the way I want - the cell orientation is preserved.

Is there a way to have Aspose.Words execute a Paste action with the “Paste as Picture” Paste Option?

I’ve attached the source Excel document and the destination Word document, so you can see what I’m trying to achieve in Aspose.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your inquiry. There is no such method to paste MS Excel contents as "Paste as Picture" into MS Word document by using Aspose.Words. However, you can use Aspose.Cells to convert MS Excel sheet to image and insert that image to Word document by using Aspose.Words as shown in following code snippet.

//open a template Excel file.

Aspose.Cells.Workbook book = new Aspose.Cells.Workbook(MyDir + "Angled+Headers.xlsx");

//Get the first worksheet.

Aspose.Cells.Worksheet sheet = book.Worksheets[0];

//Define ImageOrPrintOptions

Aspose.Cells.Rendering.ImageOrPrintOptions imgOptions = new Aspose.Cells.Rendering.ImageOrPrintOptions();

//Specify the image format

imgOptions.ImageFormat = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg;

//Only one page for the whole sheet would be rendered

imgOptions.OnePagePerSheet = true;

//Render the sheet with respect to specified image/print options

Aspose.Cells.Rendering.SheetRender sr = new Aspose.Cells.Rendering.SheetRender(sheet, imgOptions);

//Render the image for the sheet

Bitmap bitmap = sr.ToImage(0);

//Save the image file specifying its image format.

bitmap.Save(MyDir + @"SheetImage.jpg");

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.InsertImage(MyDir + @"SheetImage.jpg");

doc.Save(MyDir + "AsposeOut.docx");

I have noticed that the Aspose.Cells component is not converting the sheet to image correctly. I am moving this forum thread to Aspose.Cells forum and my colleagues from Aspose.Cells team will reply you shortly.
