Set CodeName on XLSX file in .NET

Hi,


When using Aspose to add a new Sheet to a WorkBook, we need to set the CodeName for this newly added sheet. As the CodeName property on the WorkSheet is readonly, we tried to access the VBAProject of the workbook to set this but we ran into some problems on the road.

When accessing VBAProject property of the WorkBook, all the worksheets CodeName are modified when accessing the property. The sheet name (label) is copied into the CodeName property.

How can we set the CodeName without altering the CodeName of the other sheets ? Why is it Readonly ?

I’ve been able to discover a workaround to set the CodeName using that behavior of the VBAProject property but it’s not clean. If you create a new workbook with Aspose (in-memory), add a new sheet, access the VBAProject property (CodeName is being set) and copy that worksheet to the original workbook, it kind of work.

We are using V16.11 (.NET).

I’ve attached a .NET app to reproduce both behaviors. As you can see if you open the XLSX file in MS-Excel, there are CodeName specified on the second sheet.

Hi,


Thanks for using Aspose.Cells.

We have fixed the issue. We did not support parsing VBA project in old version when we add Worksheet.CodeName property, so it was read-only. We will support to set codename of worksheet by Worksheet.CodeName property in the next fix.

Thanks for the quick feedback !


When is your next release ? It will be included in version 17.3.0 ?
