ERROR: This Excel files contains BIFF7(Excel95 or earlier file format) records

Hi,

I’m using the evaluation version and get the following error:
This Excel files contains BIFF7(Excel95 or earlier file format) records.
Is there a solution to get around it?

Thanks,

Martin

Hi Martin,

Well, Aspose.Cells supports BIFF8 or greater formats (Excel 97 - Excel 2007). I think you may try the following steps:

  • Open your template .xls file in MS Excel (e.g..,Ms Excel 2003).
  • Save the file As "Microsoft Office Excel Workbook".
  • Now you can use Aspose.Cells to open/manipulate the file for your requirements.

Thank you.
