Unable to read file redux

Hi, I have been having a problem and this post I found from way back in 2003 describes my issues exactly:

"I can open my source Excel file without any problem. However, after I open this source file and make some change and save as destination file in my code, I can not open the destination file by clicking this destination file. Every time I clik it, it pop up a message box and says "Unable to read file.".

The source Excel file comes from other people. If I try to build a new file of my own and do the same thing, there is no problem."

I am using Aspose Cells We were having no problems with our process until our customer supplied a new "base" Excel file to modify. I suspect they may have built the new file using a newer version of Excel or while using some unsupported feature.

Could somebody please advise?



More information; running the process using the latest Aspose Cells version in evaluation mode worked fine, which probably means this is just an unfortunate Excel versioning issue…


Thank you for considering Aspose.

As you have mentioned that you can successfully open the file with the latest version of Aspose.Cells, we will suggest you upgrade to the latest version of Aspose.Cells as it provides many new enhanced features and functionalities and it supports the new Excel Formats (Excel 97 ~ 2007).
