Is there a possibility to open an Excel file directly from Asset folder with XlslOS on a UWP platform  and this code ?

//Create an instance of ExcelEngine. using (ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine())
//Open an existing workbook. IWorkbook workbook = excelEngine.Excel.Workbooks.Open(@"ms-appx:///Assets/Calendrier2017.xls");

//Access the first worksheet from the workbook instance. IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

//Read/access the value of the cell (B3) textBox1.Text = worksheet["B3"].Text;

Thank you for your help

Precision it's just to read the file not to modify it

Thank you for your help

Hi Pineau, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
Documents cannot be opened directly from Asset folder in UWP platform. Please follow the below steps to open documents in UWP platform. 
1.     Add the document (Excel document) into Embedded Resource. 
2.     Create stream for the document. 
3.     Open the stream using Workbook.OpenAsync(stream) method. 
We have also prepared a sample for this which can be downloaded from the following location
