Import xml to Cell Gets the wrong value & OutPut Excel file Gives Error


My name is Ramesh Patra, I am from doctors company. We purchased the product under the license “THE DOCTORS MANAGEMENT COMPANY”

We are facing 2 problems, while importing the xml data files to the excel file.

I have attached the sample code, excel file, DebugWorkbookSmall.xlsm , sample1.xml and sample2.Xml file

Problem 1 :
It imports the cell value (C5) “Unavailable Information Neutral Factor” to 2147483647.
Please use sample1.xml file.
Here is the C# code.

var wb = new Workbook(@“C:\WindowsFormsApp2\DebugWorkbookSmall.xlsm”);
var ws = wb.Worksheets[0];

          wb.ImportXml(@"C:\Sample1.xml", ws.Name, 0, 0);

         wb.Save(@"C:\Ouput.xlsm", SaveFormat.Xlsm);

Problem 2:
After importing the sample2.xml. When we are trying to open the Output.Xlsm file it
Gives error “We found a problem with some content in Output.xlsm’ Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes”
Please use sample2.xml file

var wb = new Workbook(@"C:\\DebugWorkbookSmall.xlsm");
          var ws = wb.Worksheets[0];
           wb.ImportXml(@"C:\Sample2.xml", ws.Name, 0, 0);
        wb.Save(@"C:\Ouput.xlsm", SaveFormat.Xlsm); (43.0 KB)

Please let me know if you need any clarification.

Thanks for your help.
