wBook.Open(inputFile.FilePath, FileFormatType.TabDelimited);

it throws the following error

at System.Number.ParseDouble(String value, NumberStyles options, NumberFormatInfo numfmt)
at System.Double.Parse(String s, NumberStyles style, NumberFormatInfo info)

at GEMS.FileHandling.ExcelParser.IsExcelValid(FileDetails inputFile, DataTable dtColumnDetails) in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\GEMSHub\FileDetectionAndHandlingComponent\GenericParser\ExcelParser.cs:line 245

Could you post your template file here, we will check your issue soon.

Thank you.


thanks for your response. Please find attached template file with a record, which fails opening.

Hi,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for Considering Aspose,

Well, I used your provided template file to open as Tab Delimited and it worked fine with Aspose.Cells Latest Version. The issue may be occurring due to the use of some older version of Aspose.Cells. Please try the attached latest version of Aspose.Cells.

Also I have saved your Tab Delimited file as Ms Excel .xls after opening it and the resultant file is also attached.

Thank you & Best Regards,
