Open CSV file with value longer than 32K in a cell

Hi I’m trying to open a CSV file, and it gives me an error “You want to put a string longer than 32K to Cell T2469. MS Excel only allows to put a string shorter than 32K to a Cell.”

I know that there is an option Settings.CheckExcelRestriction, that when setting it to false it should not throw this error, but I don’t know how to use the settings on opening an existing file.

Here is my code

Dim lOptions As Aspose.Cells.TxtLoadOptions

lOptions = New Aspose.Cells.TxtLoadOptions(Aspose.Cells.LoadFormat.CSV)
lOptions.ConvertNumericData = False
lOptions.ConvertDateTimeData = False
Dim Xls As New Aspose.Cells.Workbook(FileName, lOptions)
