I'm trying to import an Excel workbook generated with another tool and I'm getting an exception saying Requested value ‘border’ not found; when I open the same file using Excel, all is fine.

I'm using SpreadSheetControl.ImportFromExcel(stream);

I have looked, but didn't found any workaround, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

The version currently used is

I got this issue while opening an excel created by LibreOffice(Open Source alternative to MS Office). I'm sure you'll be able to reproduce the scenario if you make an excel using LibreOffice and then try opening it through the ExcelEngine.
