Writing data to open Excel file

Good evening!
Can you please tell me, can I, with the the library Aspose, write some data to an already open excel file?

I tried to do it - as indicated in the example), but an error occurs, that is, the Excel cannot be written and saved in an open file.

Is it possible ?


Thanks for your query.

Aspose.Cells behaves differently than Interop and does not allow to write/save in an opened Excel file. Feel free to contact us any time if you need further help or have some other issue or queries, we will be happy to assist you soon.

Thank you!


I think you may easily cope with it using any of the following options

  1. Close the opened file (which is opened in Ms Excel manually).
  2. Save the Excel file with different name in code using Aspose.Cells APIs.

Hope, this helps.

Unfortunately, this is not very convenient. This file is used by another person.
Unfortunately will have to use Qt library.
