Hi,

I'm wondering if there is a simple way to import a stream (Excel file) from a database instead of the usual case of study which open a dialog box?

=> XlsxFormatProvider().Import(stream)

Is it necessary to override ImportOverride in XlsxFormatProvider in order to not generate error like "no directory found!" (avoid those kind of control)

Do you have a simple solution to perform that?
Thanks

JG

Hello GJ,

Overriding ImportOverride in XlsxFormatProvider is not necessary. There is a static class called WorkbookFormatProvidersManager which has a method Import. Using this method you can retrieve a Workbook object and set it to your RadSpreadsheet. Here is some code you can find useful:

using (FileStream fileStream = File.OpenRead("test.xlsx"))
{
this.spreadsheet.Workbook = WorkbookFormatProvidersManager.Import(".xlsx", fileStream);
}
NOTE: In order to use our XlsxFormatProvider you need to register it first using the following code:
WorkbookFormatProvidersManager.RegisterFormatProvider(new XlsxFormatProvider());

Hope that helps. If you have any other difficulties get back to us.

 All the best,

Hi!

Thanks this works perfectly.

Is it possible to import other excel file format such as .xls/.xlsm ?

Hi GJ,

For the time being RadSpreadsheet supports three formats as you can read here. For Q2 2013 we plan to extend our XLSX support, but unfortunately new formats beside those described in this article won't be supported. However after Q2 release we will evaluate the effort and demand of new formats and if possible add support for the most requested ones.

Hello,

Thank you for writing.

I kindly ask you to open a new support ticket and attach the xlsx files that cannot be imported there. Once we are able to replicate the issue on our side, we will do our best to address it. Thank you in advance.

I am looking forward to your reply.
