Export Excel to data table as string without the column name using Aspose.Cells for .NET in C#Export Excel to data table as string without the column name using Aspose.Cells for .NET in C#

Issue: ExportDataTableAsString doesn’t seem to handle properly the cases where exportColumnName is set to false.

Run the following code against the attached spreadsheet.

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Drawing.Imaging;
using System.Linq;
using System.Linq.Expressions;
using System.Text;
using Aspose.Cells;
using Aspose.Cells.Charts;
using Aspose.Cells.Drawing;
using Aspose.Cells.Pivot;
using Aspose.Cells.Rendering;
using Aspose.Cells.Tables;
using TestAspose.NorthwindDataSetTableAdapters;
//using pk =DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging;
//using ox=DocumentFormat.OpenXml;
//using oxs = DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Spreadsheet;

namespace TestAspose
class Program

static void Main(string[] args)


public static void TestExportDataTableAsString()
Workbook workbook = new Workbook(@“C:\temp\spreadsheets\test_ExportDataTableAsString.xlsx”);
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
Range displayRange = worksheet.Cells.MaxDisplayRange;

DataTable dataTable = worksheet.Cells.ExportDataTableAsString(0, 0,displayRange.RowCount, displayRange.ColumnCount, false);
dataTable.TableName = “Data”;
Console.WriteLine(“First DataTable”);
ExportTableOptions options = new ExportTableOptions();
options.ExportAsString = true;
options.ExportColumnName = false;
dataTable = worksheet.Cells.ExportDataTable(0, 0, displayRange.RowCount, displayRange.ColumnCount, options);
dataTable.TableName = “Data2”;
Console.WriteLine(“Second DataTable”);


This program produces the following output:

First DataTable


Second DataTable




As you can see, the first row is missing in the first DataTable. That should not happen.

I tested this with version
