Opening a Tab Delimited File with Aspose


We own licenses to Aspose Cells and Total.

I have a tab delimited text file. I can change it's extension to xls, and then open it in excel. However, when I try to open it programmatically with Aspose, I get the following exception: "This file's format is not supported or you don't specify a correct format."

I am using the following code to open the file, and the exception occurs on the final line.

Dim lo = New LoadOptions()
Dim ldo = New LoadDataOption()
ldo.SheetIndexes = New Integer() {0}
ldo.ImportFormula = False
lo.LoadDataOnly = True
lo.LoadDataOptions = ldo
Dim workbook = New Workbook(filePath, lo)

I would appreciate any help you can give.




Please try this code and let us know your results.

'Instantiate LoadOptions specified by the LoadFormat.

Dim loadOptions As New LoadOptions(LoadFormat.TabDelimited)

'Create a Workbook object and opening the file from its path

Dim wb As New Workbook(“e:\test\Book1.txt”, loadOptions)
