The Telerik Xamarin SpreadProcessing is a document processing library that enables you to work with spreadsheet documents—create new ones from scratch, modify existing documents or convert between the most common spreadsheet formats. You can save the generated workbook to a local file, stream, or stream it to the client browser.
The library model allows you to employ C# and VB.NET, closely follows the established document standard, defined in the Office Open XML specification, and supports .NET Framework, .NET Core and .NET Standard.
Telerik Xamarin SpreadProcessing is completely independent from external libraries or UI. Process Microsoft Excel documents without having Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office or any third-party spreadsheet software installed on the client or server.
Common spreadsheet file extensions and formats, including XLSX (Excel Workbook), XLS (Excel 97-2003 Workbook), CSV, plain text and PDF (export only), are fully supported in the Telerik SpreadProcessing library. The API also enables you to easily convert DataTable objects into Worksheet and vice versa in case you need to work with data from a database.

The API of the workbook model allows you to set several spreadsheet row and column attributes. You can manually specify a column width or row height or change the column width to automatically fit its contents with the help of AutoFit functionality. Additionally, the hidden state of each row or column can be set to allow users to hide certain rows and columns in the spreadsheet.
Cells form where rows and columns intersect in a worksheet and serve as the essential unit for organizing and manipulating data. With Telerik Xamarin SpreadProcessing, you have a full set of tools to work with cells. Define value and formatting settings, such as fill, border, font, wrapping, number format, text rotation indentation and many more. In addition, predefined cell value types are available to help you easily work with any type of data.

You can also leverage predefined filters, such as Top, Bottom, Above Average, Fill and ForeColor to perform advanced filtering or use custom logic to create your own filters.
Sorting is a feature that allows you to create, adjust and apply data sorting logic to select parts of the spreadsheet, such as rows, columns and ranges. Data can be organized in ascending and descending order, by Fill and ForeColor values or by custom sorting logic.
The autofill function enables you to automatically fill series of values into worksheet cells, based on a pattern. The SpreadProcessing API allows you to set cell values to repeat other cell values or apply algorithms for linear, linear trend, exponential, exponential trend sequences and date series.
