[Cells .Net 1.8.9] Cannot read headers and footers when using SheetSettings load data filter option


Specifically with the XLSB file format, headers and footers fail to read correctly when using LoadDataFilterOptions.SheetSettings. The load filter works for every other file extension, but we can’t get it to work. I have an example file attached.

Thanks! (10.3 KB)


Thanks for your query.

I am afraid that I could not understand the issue. Please provide more details about this issue along with images and a console application (runnable) which can be executed here to observe the problem.


For some reason I can’t get the zip file containing the console application to upload. So instead I have just attached the code that can recreate the issue. Thanks! (538 Bytes)

Hey @Amjad_Sahi,

I can’t seem to download the zip, I keep getting “Sorry, this file is private. Only visible to topic owner and staff members.”


We are sorry for your inconvenience, we will evaluate this issue soon.

In the meantime, please try the fix by downloading it from dropbox:
Aspose.Cells18.9.1 For .Net2_AuthenticodeSigned.Zip
Aspose.Cells18.9.1 For .Net4.0.Zip

@Amjad_Sahi thanks for getting back to me so quickly! The dropbox linked work. However, I tested the new DLL and we’re still getting the issue. We also ran into the issue using the LoadFilter with LoadDataFilterOptions.Chart and LoadDataFilterOptions.CellValue, so right now it looks like xlsb files can’t use a LoadDataFilterOption other than LoadDataFilterOption.All instead of my initial thought of it being an issue with reading the headers and footers from the xlsb.


Good to know that it figures out your issue.

Please create new threads (one per issue) with details, sample code (runnable) and template file(s), we will check it soon. Creating one thread per issue will give us feasibility to manage users issues appropriately and to consequently figure these out soon.
