"System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range" when open an Excel Workbook with images.


We have an uncontrolled exception when open an Excel workbook. Those are the details:

Aspose.Cells.dll Version:

Code Call:

Workbook m_excelWorkbook = new Workbook(templateName);<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

//TemplateName is the path of the file.

File example:

I had attached the file.

Stack trace:

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.

Parameter name: startIndex

Please try the attached latest fix v5.3.3.6 (you may also try our upcoming version v6.0.0 that is scheduled to release today/tomorrow at sometime), it works fine with your file.

Thank you.

Thanks for the update.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

We already tested it, we found the Exception previously thrown does not appear anymore but now when convert to pdf the images are not available.

Do you have a solution for this?

We used v6.0.0.

Please see attached file. This is the pdf generated by the file attached in my previous post.


I tested your scenario (convert your template file to PDF) using your template file. I have found the issue as you have mentioned, the embedded objects in the sheet are not rendered fine in the generated PDF file. I have logged your issue with an id: CELLSNET-28508. We will fix your issue soon.

Thank you.


Could you try the attached version v6.0.0.1, your issue should be fixed with it as I have tested a bit.

Thank you.
