Hi Piyush,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells for .NET.

You can convert your workbook object into byte array, then you can save the byte array in a session object, afterwards you can retrieve the byte array from session object and convert it into workbook object again.

Please see the following code for your reference. It converts the source xlsx file into byte array, then it converts the byte array into workbook again.


string filePath = @“F:\source.xlsx”;

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(filePath);

MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

workbook.Save(ms, SaveFormat.Xlsx);

ms.Position = 0;

byte[] bytesWorkbook = new byte[ms.Length];

ms.Read(bytesWorkbook, 0, bytesWorkbook.Length);

//Now you can save array of bytes into Session

//From Session, you can retrieve the bytes and convert it to workbook again using the following code

MemoryStream ms2 = new MemoryStream();

ms2.Write(bytesWorkbook, 0, bytesWorkbook.Length);

Workbook workbook2 = new Workbook(ms);
