Form Control Links Removed

Annual Report.zip (13.2 KB)

I’m having problems when saving the attached XLSX file using Aspose.Cells. The sheet has some form controls which work in the file when created in Excel, but then if I do the following:

        Workbook wb = new Workbook("Annual Report.xlsx");
        wb.Save("Annual Report Saved.xlsx");

the form controls have their cell link/input range blanked in the newly saved version as shown in the screenshots:

Any idea why this might be occuring?


I can not reproduce the issue with Aspose.Cells for .NET 20.6. Output file is attached Annual Report Saved.zip (12.9 KB)

Could you please check and share screenshots if you notice issue with this file.

The issue still exists for me in your saved copy, exactly as in the screenshots I’ve already provided. What version of Excel are you opening the file in? It seems it may only be a problem with newer versions of Excel 365 (2004/2005).

It could be similar to this problem: Apsose 20.6 is not working with Excel form in Office 365
