Deleting rows in named range corrupts excel

while deleting rows in a named range from aspose cell i get the error attached along with. Please help me out with it, i have spent quite some time on this but no help. The version of aspose cells that i am using is 8.2.2

Hi Meenakshi,

Thank you for contacting Aspose support.

I am afraid, we require your sample spreadsheet along with the source code to replicate & investigate the matter on our side therefore please provide the above requested. Before you move forward to provide the additional information, we request you to try the case against the latest version of Aspose.Cells for .NET (Latest Version) as you are using an older revision at the moment.
The problem occurs while downloading the report in xlsx, however it works when downloaded as xls.
Attached is the spreadsheet and following is the sample code that deletes the named range:

//get the named range
Range rgCustomBranding = wd.Workbook.Worksheets.GetRangeByName("CustomBrandingEnabledRows");
if(rgCustomBranding ==null)
//delete rows from named range
wd.Workbook.Worksheets["AvailabilityReport"].Cells.DeleteRows(rgCustomBranding .FirstRow, rgCustomBranding .RowCount);

Hi Meenakshi,

Thank you for sharing the samples.

We have evaluated the presented scenario while using the latest version of Aspose.Cells for .NET & the following piece of code, and we are able to reproduce the problem on our side, that is; if the result is saved in XLSX format after deleting the rows from a Named Range, the resultant spreadsheet cannot be loaded in Excel without repair. However, XLS file format does not show such issue. In order to further investigate the matter on our side, we have logged this incident in our bug tracking system under the ticket CELLSNET-43931. Our product team will further look into the details of this problem and we will keep you updated on the status of correction. We apologize for your inconvenience.


FileStream content = File.OpenRead(“d:/AvailabilityMetroTemplate.xls”);
Aspose.Cells.Workbook document = new Workbook(content);
Range rgCustomBranding = document.Worksheets.GetRangeByName(“CustomBrandingEnabledRows”);
document.Worksheets[“AvailabilityReport”].Cells.DeleteRows(rgCustomBranding.FirstRow, rgCustomBranding.RowCount);
document.Save(“D:/output.xlsx”, SaveFormat.Xlsx);
