ThisWorkbook.UpdateLinks property value is lost/reset after using Aspose

We use Aspose.Cells 8.0.2 for Java.

1. We have an Excel file with the ThisWorkbook.UpdateLinks property manually set to "2 - xlUpdateLinksNever" using Excel's VB Editor's Properties pane. After re-saving the file using Aspose, this value is reverted to "1 - xlUpdateLinksUserSetting". Is this the expected behavior?

2. How to get and set the properties for ThisWorkbook in Aspose, as seen in Excel VB Editor's Properties pane?

Thanks.

Hi Simon,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

It might be a bug in Aspose.Cells. Please download and try the latest version: Aspose.Cells
for Java v8.2.0.4
and see if it makes any difference.

If your issue still occurs, then please provide us your source Excel file causing this issue. We will look into it and help you asap.

In case, it is a bug, we will log it in our database so that this issue could be fixed in our next versions.

Hi Shakeel,


The result is the same with v8.2.0.4,

Attached UpdateLinks_BeforeAspose.xlsx is the Excel file which can reproduce the issue. Observe that ThisWorkbook.UpdateLinks is originally set to 2 in this file.

After running the following code, which simply re-saves the file using Aspose…

}

…the resultant UpdateLinks_AfterAspose.xlsx has its ThisWorkbook.UpdateLinks property inadvertently modified from 2 to 1.
