Pivot table refresh is not working properly

Hi Team,

I am getting an issue with PivotTable refresh when using the aspose.

When using the default excel functionality and refresh the pivot manually it works fine.

Below is an image describing the issue -

SourceCode - PivotIssue.zip (56.8 KB)

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        FileStream fs;
        fs = File.Open(@"Book1.xlsx", FileMode.Open);
        Workbook wb = new Workbook(fs);
        var sheet = wb.Worksheets["Pivot"];

Steps to reproduce :-

1.) execute the source code attached above.
2.) the excel sheet book1.xlsx which is attached originally does not have any extra line.
3.) after the execution of the code go to the file and open it —> /bin/debug/book1.xlsx
4.) you will see an extra line in the pivot table. when do a refreshAll manually from the sheet the extra line goes away.

Please advise a solution to this.

Thanks much.

The issue was due to following reasons and findings which are fixed in the new fix.

  1. When the number of PivotField in the data area is greater than or equal to 2.
  2. “Display field captions and filter drop downs” and “Classic PivotTable layout” are not checked in the PivotTable display setting.
  3. There is a problem in column area calculation.
