Problem opening SpreadsheetML when there exists a Named Range with the letter 'R'


I have a spreadsheet here (attached) that only contains a single named range. This name (MyName) refers to a string literal ‘Office Products R Us’.

When I try to open this spreadsheetML with Aspose, it throws:

System.ApplicationException: Invalid formula in cell @0: =“Office Products R Us”

However, when the ‘R’ is changed to anyother letter (e.g. Office Products C Us) then Aspose would not throw the above error.

Here is the code I used to open this spreadsheetML:

var workbook = new Workbook();

workbook.Open(“C:\NamedRangeWithR.xml”, FileFormatType.SpreadsheetML);


Hi Steve,

I get the error opening your template spreadsheetML (.xml) file into MS Excel (2003, 2007 etc.) , check the attached screenshot.

Kindly make sure that the file can be opened properly by MS Excel (without generating any error types etc.), so Aspose.Cells should open it fine. If a file is opened fine into MS Excel but not with Aspose.Cells for .NET, we will figure out the issue then.

Thank you.

Sorry … here’s one attached that opens fine on my Excel 2003.


Please try the attached version.

Thank you.

Works great! Thanks.
