[java] Excel to pdf throwed com.aspose.cells.CellsException exception

I am trying to translate excel file into pdf, but i’m getting
“com.aspose.cells.CellsException Invalid sheet reference for the defined Name” exception.
Probably because excel file has reference to other file that doesn’t exist. I am wondering if there is a possibility to ignore such exceptions and just leave blank cell where invalid reference exist?

I am alos sending you excel that is causing a problem Test Excel.zip (45.6 KB)
Thanks and kind regards,

I have logged a ticket with an id “CELLSJAVA-45021” for your issue. We will look into the details of the issue.
