Re: Embedding Excel sheet into word

hi

It works perfectly fine only problem I am facing is when I do an add ole object which is an excel file in my case I want to see the excel itself embedded on the word document what do I do for this.

Hi,

Thanks for your inquiry. Aspose.Cells supports converting Excel worksheets to images. A simple solution would be to just convert Worksheet to image and then use that preview/thumbnail image in DocumentBuilder.InsertOleObject method as follows:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
Stream memoryStream = File.OpenRead(MyDir + "Worksheet.xls");
Shape oleObject = builder.InsertOleObject(memoryStream, "Excel.Sheet.8", false, Image.FromFile(MyDir + "SheetImage.jpg"));
doc.Save(MyDir + @"out.docx");

Hope, this helps.

Best regards,

let me re iterate the question.

what will it be if i have to preview an excel which is added as on ole.
for now i see the excel icon and once i double click that i can see data but what i want is the excel itself shows up in the word document.
Please let me know

I tried this

Shape oleObject = builder.insertOleObject("AccessingOleFrameData.xls", "Excel.Sheet.8", false,false , null);

doc.save("out.docx");

i get an error as

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: This is not a structured storage file.

Hi,

Thanks for your inquiry. As mentioned earlier, Aspose.Cells for Java supports converting Excel worksheets to images. A simple solution would be to just convert Worksheet to image (either page by page or convert entire worksheet to one image) and then use that image in DocumentBuilder.InsertOleObject method as follows:.

You can pass any of the images to DocumentBuilder.InsertOleObject method as follows:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read(new File("D:\\temp\\aspose\\entire.png"));
Shape oleObject = builder.insertOleObject("D:\\temp\\aspose\\interview.xlsx", true, false, image );
doc.save("D:\\temp\\aspose\\awjava-17.2.0.docx");

Please see attached Aspose.Cells for Java generated image files and Aspose.Words for Java generated output DOCX file.

Hope, this helps.

Best regards,
