Using structured references with Excel tables

How do I insert Structured References in Tables in Excel?


Using PutCellValue will just show the Formula on the screen.
Using Cells[].Formula will convert to #REF!

Trying something like: =SUM(TEST_TABLE[@[SCORE_1]:[SCORE_3]])

I attached the Excel template and VS solution.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Workbook wb = new Workbook(“C:\Users\wbrixon\Desktop\TEST_TEMPLATE.xlsx”);

Worksheet ws = wb.Worksheets[“TEST_SHEET”];

Cell cell = ws.Cells[“B3”];
ListObject table = cell.GetTable();

table.PutCellValue(1,0,“Dude Smith”);
table.PutCellValue(1, 1, “Do Stuff”);
table.PutCellValue(1, 2, 100);
table.PutCellValue(1, 3, 90);
table.PutCellValue(1, 4, 80);
table.PutCellValue(1, 5, “=SUM(TEST_TABLE[@[SCORE_1]:[SCORE_3]])”);

table.PutCellValue(2, 0, “Jane Smith”);
table.PutCellValue(2, 1, “Do MORE Stuff”);
table.PutCellValue(2, 2, 110);
table.PutCellValue(2, 3, 190);
table.PutCellValue(2, 4, 180);
ws.Cells[table.StartRow + 2, table.StartColumn + 5].Formula = “=SUM(TEST_TABLE[@[SCORE_1]:[SCORE_3]])”;

wb.CalculateFormula();

Hi,


Thanks for the template file and sample project.

Please try our latest version/fix: Aspose.Cells for .NET v17.2.0.
Well, ListObject.PutCellValue only specifies the string as value and not formula to the cell, so you should not use it. I think you may try to use ListColumn.Formula attribute instead. See the sample updated code segment for your reference. I have tested it with v17.2.0 using your template file and it works fine:
e.g
Sample code:

Workbook wb = new Workbook(“TEST_TEMPLATE.xlsx”);

Worksheet ws = wb.Worksheets[“TEST_SHEET”];

Cell cell = ws.Cells[“B3”];
ListObject table = cell.GetTable();

table.PutCellValue(1,0,“Dude Smith”);
table.PutCellValue(1, 1, “Do Stuff”);
table.PutCellValue(1, 2, 100);
table.PutCellValue(1, 3, 90);
table.PutCellValue(1, 4, 80);
table.PutCellValue(2, 0, “Jane Smith”);
table.PutCellValue(2, 1, “Do MORE Stuff”);
table.PutCellValue(2, 2, 110);
table.PutCellValue(2, 3, 190);
table.PutCellValue(2, 4, 180);

table.ListColumns[5].Formula = “=SUM(TEST_TABLE[@[SCORE_1]:[SCORE_3]])”;
wb.CalculateFormula();


Hope, this helps a bit.

Thank you.

Thanks, that worked. I did find it much easier to build out the table into a range and then convert it into a ListObject.


salaryWorksheet.Cells.Columns[14].ApplyStyle(decStyle, decFlag);
salaryWorksheet.Cells.Columns[15].ApplyStyle(decStyle, decFlag);

ListObjectCollection listObjects = salaryWorksheet.ListObjects;
listObjects.Add(TITLE_ROW, FIRST_DATA_COL, lastDataRow, lastDataCol, true);
listObjects[0].DisplayName = “SALARY”;
listObjects[0].TableStyleType = TableStyleType.TableStyleMedium19;

listObjects[0].ListColumns[“TIG”].Formula = “=(TODAY()-SALARY[Labor Grade Dt])/365.25”;
listObjects[0].ListColumns[“YOS”].Formula = “=(TODAY()-SALARY[Hire Dt])/365.25”;
