I'm using syncfusion XlsIo to export image to Excel.
My original program supported this feature only to Excel 2003 and under which is a .xls file, and it worked fine.

However, now I'm trying to export the same thing to Excel 2007 which is a .xlsx file, and it ls not working.

Thank you in advance.

Here's the source code.
   ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();
    IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;
    IWorkbook sourceWorkbook = null;
    sourceWorkbook = application.Workbooks.Add();
    if (sourceWorkbook.Worksheets.Count == 3)
    IWorksheet sheet = sourceWorkbook.Worksheets[0];
    if (image != null)
        IPictureShape pic = sheet.Pictures.AddPicture(1, 1, image); // image is Bitmap
    sourceWorkbook.Version = ExcelVersion.Excel2007;


Here's the Error Message

Hi Dong-Rak Park,

  Thank you using the Syncfusion Product.

We are not able to reproduce the issue from our side and we suspect that issue may be raised due to the image. So, Could you please update the sample or image with your version details?  Its help us to investigate further on this.

Please let us know if you have any clarification.
