Aspose.cells Old Excel format Biff5

Hello. I want to convert excel file to pdf. but my file is old excel format Biff5. Is Aspose.Cells support old excel format Biff5.


Thanks for your query.

See the document on supported input and output document formats by Aspose.Cells APIs for your reference:

Please note, Generally Aspose.Cells APIs supports BIFF8 or greater formats (Excel 97 - Excel 2010/2013, Excel 2016 or later) completely. However, in recent versions, it now supports to load (only) BIFF7 or older formats, i.e., Excel 95/5.0 but it cannot save or render the older format. Unfortunately, there isn’t a dynamic way to tackle your situation unless you manually change/re-save the format of the spreadsheet (to “Excel 97- 2003 Workbook” or “Excel Workbook”, etc.) while using MS Excel (e.g 2003/2007-2013/2016) application and then load the re-saved spreadsheets with Aspose.Cells APIs. Now Aspose.Cells will work fine to read your file to render to PDF file format.

@Amjad_Sahi Thank’s for reply


We recommend you to kindly try upgrading to and use latest version of the product which includes support for older BIFF7 (Excel 95/5.0 - 2003 Workbook) formats with enhancements now:
