Excel Groupings not supported (Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop)


I have an excel file with groups but as soon as I load it using Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop, the groups are not showing.

And my application crashes when I click on the cells after loading the excel file into the gridDesktop control.

I've attached the excel file that I am using and below is my code.

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


gridDesktop1.ImportExcelFile("C:\\IFRS SME Financials.xlsx");

Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop.WorksheetCollection worksheets = gridDesktop1.Worksheets;

Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop.Style s = new Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop.Style(gridDesktop1);

gridDesktop1.Names.Add("MyRange", "Sheet1!A2:A6");

gridDesktop1.Worksheets[2].Cells["C1"].SetCellValue("=-SUMIF(TBLink,'i.*.*', Final)");

gridDesktop1.RecalculateFormulas = true;


Thanks in advance for your assistance.



After an initial test, I can find the issue as you have mentioned, we need to investigate the issue. But, even when I opened your Excel file into MS Excel 2007, I also found errors and MS Excel finally repaired the file for display into it.

I have logged a ticket with an id: CELLSNET-40115. We will look into it soon.

Thank you.


Any feedback regarding CELLSNET-40115?
