Formatting not retained while creating .ppt from excel template in Java

I'm trying to save a excel workbook template as a powerpoint presentation. The background color of grey colored cells in the tables in the excel sheets are not retained as such. They become black instead. How do we retain formatting?

Thanks

Hi,

This issue is due to the fact the background color is not in workbook’s palette.
Now, we have supported to choose one color from palette that is nearest to the
custom color when saving excel2003 file. Please try the new
fix (attached).


Thank you.

Thank you for the fix.

I did try out the new jar file and the ppt that was generated had white background instead of the gray from the template excel file. Previously we used to get black, so this is a great improvement. :-)

I understand this is because the workbook palette does not have this gray color. How do I make sure it has the gray color? Can we do something to acheive this? If I used Red instead of gray that stays in the ppt, just some of the colors dont work.

Thanks again

Hi,



Yes, the colors present in Excel 2003 color palette (e.g red, blue, green, yellow, black etc.) would be shown in the worksheet cells. But, if you use custom colors (as this is the case with you) they won’t be rendered but the nearest matching color would be applied.

Thank you.

Thank you for the reply.

When will this feature be available where the workbooks can support all the colors?

Thank you

We will try to
support the feature before the end of this month.

Hi,

Somehow I'm not able to convert excel to ppt at all. I have attached the source code.

I'm using Aspose slides and Aspose Cells to do this.
