I'd like to know if it is possible to serialize/deserialize the spreadsheet control as string, xml, binary, etc. Including;

Named Ranges

I'd appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

Carlos Diaz.

Hi Carlos,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have analyzed your query and you can serialize and deserialize the spreadsheetcontrol as xml file by using the workbook like in the below code snippet and it should include formatting, formulas, named ranges etc.

Code Snippet[C#]:

private void Serialize_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


    IWorkbook workbook = this.spreadsheetControl1.ExcelProperties.WorkBook;



private void DeSerialize_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


    ExcelEngine engine = new ExcelEngine();

    IWorkbook workbook = engine.Excel.Workbooks.OpenFromXml('test.xml'ExcelXmlOpenType.MSExcel);



We have prepared a sample based on this and you can download the sample from the below location.

Sample: SpreadsheetDemo_WPF.zip

Hi Pannir,

I have a problem with the solution that you mentioned, and surely you will able to reproduce the problem: ( use the same project that you attached before )

1. Click on Serialize.
2. Click on Deserialize.
3. Click on Serialize again, HERE is raising an exception ( ArgumentOutOfRangeException ).

Could you help me to resolve that?

Thanks in advance.

Carlos Diaz.
