Reading files inside zip file

Hi, I am using Aspose.Cells licensed version and want to read pipe delimited text files which are placed inside a zip file. Can Aspose.Cells open the zip file and read the text file which is pipe delimited? I know, aspose can read pipe delimited file but will it be able to do it when the file is zipped?

Please let me know.



Thanks for your posting and interest in Aspose.Cells.

I guess, it is not possible. But I have forwarded your query to development to update you more correctly. Also I have logged this issue in our database.

I was looking for a workaround, after searching on internet, I found, you can extract your files using a third party or open source library then create a workbook object from decompressed file.

For that purpose, I have found one open source library: ShareZipLib.

Please give it a try and see if it solves your problem.
