I am just learning Aspose.Cells for .NET. I have a workbook that I want to use as a template, because of its formatting. The EXCEL file I am trying to emulate has a different layout and formatting on the first worksheet then it does on all the other sheets. The first worksheet is a "summary sheet" with a certain layout and headings. All the additional worksheets contain "detail information" and different headings than the "summary sheet" at the top. All the detail worksheets have the same headings and layout. The number of detail worksheets can be anywhere from 1 to 20 or more.
Must I use 2 different XLS files as templates to do this? For example, do I open a workbook with the "summary" style and use it to create the first worksheet and then open another workbook that has the "detail" style that I need for the remaining sheets and keep populating and adding those sheets to the original workbook as needed? I guess that would amount to opening 2 workbooks and somehow copying a worksheet from the 2nd workbook into the first one.
Or, is there a way to open a template XLS that already contains 2 worksheets, one "summary" and one "detail". Then I keep creating new "detail" worksheets form the original "detail" sheet as needed?
I can't find any demos or examples that show me how to do this. I imagine that it is a popular request. It would be something like a "Table of Contents" followed by the individual "Chapters".
Thanks for any help...
