Not able to add VBA Module and Code using Aspose.Cells


#1

Hi,

I am not able to add VBA Module and code using aspose.cells. When I try to run this example and open the file , it gives me that file contains invalid key.

https://docs.aspose.com/display/cellsjava/Adding+VBA+Module+and+Code+using+Aspose.Cells

Thanks,
Saurabh

I tried the code with the most recent version and it is working fine.

Download Links:
Output Xlsm File.zip (7.0 KB)
Aspose.Cells for Java v17.7.7
sc.png (258.6 KB)

Java

// Create new workbook
Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

// Access first worksheet
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0);

// Add VBA Module
int idx = workbook.getVbaProject().getModules().add(worksheet);

// Access the VBA Module, set its name and codes
VbaModule module = workbook.getVbaProject().getModules().get(idx);
module.setName("TestModule");

module.setCodes("Sub ShowMessage()" + "\r\n" + "    MsgBox \"Welcome to Aspose!\"" + "\r\n" + "End Sub");

// Save the workbook
workbook.save(dirPath + "output.xlsm", SaveFormat.XLSM);

Please check this screenshot for detail information about Output Xlsm File.

I have one more question , what if my vba code is in text file. How do i insert it in module. Do we have api for that or it only accepts String.

module.setCodes()

You should read your file in byte[] and then convert it to String and use the same code given earlier.

Please download the output xlsm and the code file from the links given below.

Download Links
Output-xlsm-and-Code-file.zip (7.2 KB)
sc.png (64.8 KB)

Java

File file = new File(dirPath + "myCode.txt");

// init array with file length
byte[] bytesArray = new byte[(int) file.length()];

FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(file);
fis.read(bytesArray); // read file into bytes[]
fis.close();

// -------------------------------------------
// -------------------------------------------
// Now convert byte array into string

String strCode = new String(bytesArray);

// Print your string
System.out.println(strCode);

// -------------------------------------------
// -------------------------------------------
// Rest of code is same
// Create new workbook
Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

// Access first worksheet
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0);

// Add VBA Module
int idx = workbook.getVbaProject().getModules().add(worksheet);

// Access the VBA Module, set its name and codes
VbaModule module = workbook.getVbaProject().getModules().get(idx);
module.setName("TestModule");

module.setCodes(strCode);

// Save the workbook
workbook.save(dirPath + "output.xlsm", SaveFormat.XLSM);

Here is the screenshot for your reference.
