Hi Thilo Ruppert,
Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
We have tried the sample excel file by inserting the rows which copies the conditional formatting in the previous rows. We are unable to reproduce the above reported exception at our side. We have attached the sample file and placed the code in the following for your reference.
Source Code [C#]:
IWorksheet sheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
sheet.InsertRow(7, 3, ExcelInsertOptions.FormatAsBefore);
Please try the attached excel file with the above code and let us know if this helps you. Also, please get back to us with the following to proceed further on this.
1.The input template excel file which causes the above exception
2.The Essential Version using at your side.
3.Simplified sample with input excel file which reproduces the issue.
We have tried the attached sample file with our latest version.
Please let me know if you have any further clarifications.

Hi There,

Thanks for your timely answer. I have copied the code where I am inserting rows in the excel sheet. I have attached the excel file with this post.

IWorkbook book = app.Workbooks.Open(Server.MapPath(@"../../globals/templates/CareerStepCDDossier.xlsx"));

IWorksheet sheet = book.Worksheets[0];

string rangeToCopy = "BI_Row"; // Range from rows 7,8,9 to column AM in the attached excel file.

var firstRowNumber = sheet.Range[rangeToCopy].Row;

int firstColumnNumber = sheet.Range[rangeToCopy].Column;

int lastRowNumber = sheet.Range[rangeToCopy].Rows.Last().Row;

int rowCount = sheet.Range[rangeToCopy].Rows.Count();

sheet.InsertRow(lastRowNumber + 1, rowCount,

Hi Thilo Ruppert,


Thank you so much for the update.


We afraid that, we are unable to reproduce the above reported issue at our side. We have tried to insert row for above reported excel file with XlsIO in the version and we could not see any issues at our side. Also, we could not see any conditional formatting avilable with the worksheets for the attached excel file. Please ensure the excel file which reproduces the above exception is attached properly.


We have placed the sample in the following link for your reference. We have created the screen video of testing done at our side and attached the video with this mail.

If you still face the issue please perform the following tasks solving the issue.


1.Select Build-> Clean solution to clean up already build assemblies.

2.Remove the references and add it again with the specified framework. Check the version of the assemblies once you have added.

3.If you still face the issue, remove the assemblies from GAC using Syncfusion Assembly Manager which is available in the Syncfusion Dashboard and then install the assemblies again using the Syncfusion Assembly Manager.
