How to identify start row and start column

Hi,

How to identify from which cell the information is available in a worksheet.

Ex: In my xls file first and second row is blank. the data starts from D3, D4,D5,…
and in other xls file the data may start from B2, B3, B4…

So how could I find from which cell the data started in a worksheet?

Thanks,

Hi,

You may try Cell.MinRow and Cells.MinColumn attributes:
e.g
Workbook wb = new Workbook(@“e:\test\Book1.xlsx”);

Cells cells = wb.Worksheets[0].Cells;

MessageBox.Show("Min row: " + cells.MinRow.ToString());
MessageBox.Show("Min column: " + cells.MinColumn.ToString());


Thank you.

Hi there,

Thanks for your response. cells.MinRow and cells.MinColumn is always giving 1 and 0.

In my xsl A1,A2,B1,B2,C1 are blank. Information was available form C2 only. In some other xls file data may available from D4.

So how can I identify from which row and column, data is available(like C2)? In my given example I need to get row as 2 and column as C.

Thanks,

Hi,

"cells.MinRow and cells.MinColumn is always giving 1 and 0."

Well, 1 means second row which is right and 0 means first column which is not right. We will check if we can fix it for Cells.MinColumn attribute.

I think you may try the following sample code to get the first cell that has data in it.
e.g
Workbook wb = new Workbook(@“e:\test\Book1.xlsx”);


Cells cells = wb.Worksheets[0].Cells;


bool chk = false;
for (int i = 0; i <= wb.Worksheets[0].Cells.MaxRow; i++)
{
for (int j = 0; j <= wb.Worksheets[0].Cells.MaxColumn; j++)
{
if (wb.Worksheets[0].Cells[i, j].Type == CellValueType.IsNull)
{

continue;

}

else {

MessageBox.Show(“First cell contains data:” + wb.Worksheets[0].Cells[i, j].Name);
chk = true;
break;
}


}
if (chk)
{ break; }
}


Thank you.
