DesignerSpreadSheet problem


To decide if my company goes with your product I am trying to recreate one of our current Excel reports via Aspose.Excel code. The way we do things now is to open a template file, which contains all formatting instructions, custom colors and charts, then slam data into it before saving it to an xls file.

I have noticed that when I open one of these templates using the Excel.Open method the formatting is not preserved and the custom colors are lost.

Is there any way around this or is it simply a limitation of the current verison?



Dear Rob,

Would you send your templates to as well as describe the problems in details?

Thanks for your cooperation.


Thanks for the quick response. I have almost finished my evaluation. I will send you a mail tomorrow detailing all of the issues and questions that I have. I think it will be easier than posting 10 times!.
