How to refresh Sort of Table after Merge

Hi !

When i merge a Table (2007/2010) with:

In the merge document, my table don’t sort the column2 ! (see the file attachment)

The user is obliged to refresh himself sorting!

I tried to look into m_wb.Worksheets[0].ListObjects[0].?, but I have not found a method Sort.refresh

Thanks !


I think you may get the AutoFilter’s DataSorter for the list object or table, e.g

DataSorter sorter = listObject.AutoFilter.Sorter;

Now use Aspose.Cells’ Data Sorting feature to accomplish your task. See the document for your reference:
Data Sorting

Thank you.

Hi Amjad Sahi !
I have a xlsx model with tab sorting (set manually through Excel)
when i merge this document, the column don’t sort (but the icon sorting appears in Excel… see my file attachment)

I try
var sort = m_wb.Worksheets[m.NomFeuille].ListObjects[i].AutoFilter.Sorter;

but not effect…


I have tested your scenario with the following code and it works fine, the list object / table is sorted accordingly. See the attached output file. I used your attached file as an input file.

Sample code:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(“e:\test2\tmp6F1D.tmp.xlsx”);
ListObject listObject = workbook.Worksheets[0].ListObjects[0];
DataSorter sorter = listObject.AutoFilter.Sorter;
//Set the first order for datasorter object.
sorter.Order1 = Aspose.Cells.SortOrder.Ascending;

//Define the first key.
sorter.Key1 = 2;

//Create a cells area (range).
CellArea ca = new CellArea();

//Specify the start row index.
ca.StartRow = 4;

//Specify the start column index.
ca.StartColumn = 2;

//Specify the last row index.
ca.EndRow = 7;

//Specify the last column index.
ca.EndColumn = 2;

//Sort data in the specified data range
sorter.Sort(workbook.Worksheets[0].Cells, ca);


Thank you.

Hi Amjad Sahi !

Thanks !

But your solution is manually solution.
Ideally, I want this to happen automatically from the model.

From the Excel interface, the user selects the columns to sort. And when i merge with Aspose.Cells:

I wish the new document automatically refresh the sorted columns.

Thanks and Happy new year !


Well, I am afraid, you have to devise my suggested approach to do the sorting for the Table/List Object fields/data as there is not any automatic or other way for the task. If we have any, we will let you know here.

Thank you and wish you a happy new year to you as well from our side.

Hi !

Workaround (but use Excel Interop), for refresh Sort and Filter :

foreach (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Worksheet s in Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets)
foreach (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ListObject lo in s.ListObjects)
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Sort so = lo.Sort;
if (so != null) so.Apply();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.AutoFilter af = lo.AutoFilter;
if (af != null) af.ApplyFilter();
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.WindowState = XlWindowState.xlMinimized; // Hack
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.WindowState = XlWindowState.xlNormal;

There is no equivalent of Aspose Cells I suppose?


Thanks for sharing the workaround regarding Excel Interop.

I am afraid, by using Aspose.Cells APIs, you have to do manually as I suggested earlier.

However, if in future, we have any direct or more compact approach we will share it here.

Thank you.

Amjad Sahi, Thanks for your reply !
