Aspose.Cells returns blank PDF when saving XLS (saved with xml format) as PDF

Hi Aspose team,

I use Aspose.Cells version 18.3.0.0 to convert a XLS file (this file is saved with XML format) to PDF.
The output file is blank. Here is my code:

Aspose.Cells.Workbook workbook = new Aspose.Cells.Workbook(@“C:\test\xls_failed_to_save_as_pdf.xml”);
workbook.Save(@“C:\test\output.pdf”, Aspose.Cells.SaveFormat.Pdf);

This is my sample file xls_failed_to_save_as_pdf.zip (46.6 KB).
Could you please check this issue?
Thanks

@dunghnguyen,

Thanks for the template file.

After an initial test, I am able to observe the issue as you mentioned by converting your template XML (SpreadsheetML) file to PDF. I found Aspose.Cells returns blank PDF when saving the SpreadsheetML file as PDF:
e.g
Sample code:

 Workbook wb = new Workbook("e:\\test2\\xls_failed_to_save_as_pdf.xml", new LoadOptions(LoadFormat.SpreadsheetML)); 
           wb.Save("e:\\test2\\out1.pdf"); 

I have logged a ticket with an id “CELLSNET-46068” for your issue. We will look into it soon.

Once we have an update on it, we will let you know here.
