I have existing xlsx file which I try to open with ExcelEngine.Application.Workbooks.Open( filename, ExcelOpetnType.Automatic). This workbook has a single sheet. After opening, the object inspector shows me that there are no Worksheets (null), but the Ranges are defined in the object tree. Hopefully it's something obvious I'm overlooking. BTW, my current code works fine if I use older xls files (v2003). My Syncfusion is currently at v11.103.0.21. I've attached a copy of file which has issues.

Hi Rolf,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Opening the file with XlsIO code, we could see the worksheets collection and range collection are return the count properly.

Could you please update us with the sample code snippet, sample and the web link for object inspector for further investigating on this reported issue?

I've attached the example xlsx again and a short code snippet from the code, as well as screenshots of inspector showing that after opening the file, I see null for Worksheets object
