SourceFullName property of OleObject is empty while accessing in XLSB

HI there,

I am also having problems with Aspose.Cells and processing OLE objects that are a part of .xlsb files.

My .xlsb file contains a linked object to another excel file.

When looping over the oleObjects in the Workbook’s worksheets, the SourceFullName property of OleObject instances are empty, whereas at least one contains the link path of the linked object in the case where the file was saved (via MS Excel) in another format such as .xlsm (or any format other than .xlsb).

This problem is experienced using both Aspose.Cells 17.12 and the latest available version, 18.9.

Is this related to the bug described above, and is it solved? or should this be a new, separate post?
