Does this function functions differently when i buy licenced version of cells?

I cannot set default worksheet to be shown when i open document. I allwasy see garbage text.


It seems that you are using an old version of Aspose.Cells. And you haven't buy the license yet, right?

SetActiveSheet method was replaced with Worksheets.ActiveSheetIndex property several months before.

Garbage text is only shown in evaluation version of Aspose.Cells and it's removed several months before. Only evaluation warning sheet will be kept.

When you buy the license, please following instructions at to remove evaluation warning sheet and other limitations.


I updated version of aspose cells and i use ActiveSheetIndex property now. I haven’t got licence yet!

My question is: Am I able to set a default sheet to be shown when i open document using evaluation Aspose cells version?



Thanks for considering Aspose.

Well, Evaluation version of Aspose.Cells does provide full functionality related to its APIs. Certainly you may change or set your default sheet with index based ActiveSheetIndex property. The property is read-write too.

The ActiveSheetIndex property is useless when using evaluation Aspose cells version.


Finally the answer i seek!

So the final answer is NO, you CAN NOT set a defalut sheet to be shown when using evaluation version of Aspose Cells.


Yes. ActiveSheetIndex property doesn't work on evaluation copy. It will always show the evaluation warning worksheet as active worksheet. This is an evaluation limitation. I have updated the online docs: .
