Embedding excel tables created from Aspose.cells as MemoryStream to Aspose.Slides


I wanted to embedded an excel table which is created from Aspose.Cells and comes to me in Stream format in C#.
It should be visible/preview on the slide. It should not display “Embedded Ole Object” It should preview the data in slide.
The demo app/Code provide by Aspose opens the excel file with big fonts and it’s not visible/editable.
I tried importing one of the excel(8 kb) in Slide, but it shows “Not Enough Memory To Open The Worksheet.”
I am uploading the sample pptx that I am expecting.(Excel Should be have Preview and Editable)
Please help.
Capture.JPG (89.6 KB)

When I Open the PPTX next time.Excel gets displayed with huge area and It looks its impossible to fit it inside slide.



I have observed the issues shared by you. For your following question:

This is neither an issue with Aspose.Slides nor with PowerPoint. This is default behavior of PowerPoint that when you add Excel file using OLE Object in PowerPoint slide using Aspose.Slides the MSO OLE Engine adds red, “Embedded OLE” message image to OLE frame to show that OLE frame is disabled by default and you need to double click that in order to enable that and show preview of the OLE data it self. There are two possible workarounds for this. First that you can use any third party macros that can enable the OLE frames automatically when presentation is loaded in PowerPoint. The other option is to get the thumbnail of Excel sheet using Aspose.Cells and set that as OLE frame image to avoid Red message.

Again, Aspose.Slides does not limit to add Excel file as big as 8KB as OLE frame. Its a limitation on end of OLE Engine if it throws error on loading presentation with OLE frame. But still, I suggest you to please share a working sample project along with all source files and generated output that I may test on my end to help you further.

Thanks for the reply.
I was trying to set OLE frame image as Red Message.Not able to do it.
Do you have a working project for this?
I was trying to load after double clicking the OLE but execl opens up in huge size.
I tried using link https://docs.aspose.com/display/slidesnet/Working+Solution+for+Worksheet+Resizing.
But unable to execute it.Getting a Out Of Memory Exception.Any working solution project for this?
I have already a license for Aspose.
