Is there associated property for XMlMaps to get the RootElementName for the map like there is in Excel?

Also, is there XmlMapQuery like functionality available in Excel ?

Range XmlMapQuery(string XPath, object SelectionNamespaces, object Map);

If not, any chance it could be added?




Thanks for considering Aspose APIs.

Please provide us more information regarding your query. Please provide us some Excel file(s) or screenshots that explain what you are trying to achieve.

Please also see these articles regarding XmlMaps for more help.


It would be kind of the opposite of LinkToXml Map.

The query returns the range associated with the path.
Attached is an xlsm demonstrating the usage of XmlMapQuery (16.8 KB)



Do you want us to add this feature in Aspose.Cells? Could you provide some articles that explain the usage of this method?


Yes, please implement this feature.
The attached Excel file has example code.
