Excel conversion to PDF taking forever

Hello Aspose Team,

In attachment there is a file that have less than 20kb but when I try to convert it to PDF it generates a file larger than 2GB and takes several hours. (I’m not sure if it will ever finish).

The problem is the column M, the data in it is going “forever down”. We have tests to not convert file that has more than X rows and Y columns, but that one does have few of both.

I don’t know which methods of the Aspose Library to use to solve this problem. The server crashes every time with this file.

Below is the code I use:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(filePath);
workbook.save(pdfFilePath, com.aspose.cells.SaveFormat.PDF);
