Names with PROP_ prefix


In the attached template, i created a named range called "prop_employee". Then Excel created a documentproperty linked to the cell pointed by that name.

When I execute the code below, only cell "B4" is changed; cell "B3" remains unchanged! Could you figure out why?

I tried with Aspose.Cells v8.5.0.0 and v7.4.3.0.

The code is:

License license = new License();


Workbook wb1 = new Workbook(Server.MapPath(".") + "\\Name_with_Prop.xls");



SaveOptions Aspose_SaveOptions;

Aspose_SaveOptions = new XlsSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Excel97To2003);

wb1.Save(Response, "output.xls", ContentDisposition.Attachment, Aspose_SaveOptions);

Thank you.
