Fetch all the smart markers in the excel template

Is there any way to fetch all the smart-markers in my excel template?


Well, Smart Markers normally starts with “&=” chars, so, the best way is to find those cells which contains the value “&=” chars as their starting characters. I have written a sample code for your reference. The sample code loops through each sheet to find those cells which contains the smart markers, I have added them to List to store them. Please refer to the code sample code so you may update or create your own code accordingly for your requirements.

Sample code:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(“e:\test2\SmartMarkerDesigner.xls”);
WorksheetCollection worksheets = workbook.Worksheets;
var list = new List();

for (int i = 0; i < worksheets.Count; i++)

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[i];
Cells cells = worksheet.Cells;
Cell cell;
Cell prevcell = null;
string origval;
string partstring;

//A smart markers starts with “&=” chars so, you got to find those cells.
cell = cells.Find("&=", prevcell, new FindOptions { LookAtType = LookAtType.StartWith });
if (cell == null)

prevcell = cell;

} while (cell != null);



string [] arr = list.ToArray();

for(int i = 0 ; i< arr.Length; i++)

Hope, this helps a bit.

Thank you.
