Unable to open specific .xls Excel file in GridDesktop


When we try to open a specific .xls file in a GridDesktop application we see the following exception.

{“Cell has been removed: G2”}

I can reproduce this in your GridDesktop example project by changing the file that is loaded.

I have uploaded to OneDrive here: https://1drv.ms/x/s!Ao-n6dBju-a323UWePb45n_CZOdE?e=Vu5McO

If anything does a conversion to .xlsx (e.g. for editing) I see the file working ok in the example project. Let me know if you need me to send it another way.

Thanks, Zoe


Please notice, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned by loading/importing your template file into Aspose.Cells.GridDesktop. I found an error “Cell has been removed: G2”. I used the following line of code in a WinForm application:

Moreover, we did confirm and the error is due to formula bar control set to GridDesktop on the form. We will be looking into it to figure it out soon.

Please try this fix
