.net Excel component


I’ve got your mail from the forum on your homepage (I found no other contact information).

Can you give me some information about working with your aspose.excel component with .net Framework 1.1 and MS Visual Studio .net 2003.

thank you

Dear Andreas,

1. Aspose.Excel is built with Visual Studio .Net 2002 + .Net Framework 1.0 for backward compatibility.
2. It works with both .Net Framework 1.0 and 1.1.
3. It works with both Visual Studio .Net 2002 and 2003.
4. The demos are created with Visual Studio .Net 2002 so it prompts you to convert if you open it with Visual Studio .Net 2003. You choose Yes and everything is OK.


I converted your demo in a VS .net 2003 project and try to run.
the Northwind.aspx works until I click on a demo link.
I receive the following error:
Server Error in ‘/Aspose.Excel.Demos’ Application.

Dear Andreas,

1. Could you overwrite the Northwind.mdb file in the Demos/Database folder with that in Access 2000 Tutorial: Northwind Traders Sample Database.

2. You can get more info for this error at ACC2000: “Selected Collating Sequence Not Supported” Error Message.
