Asked On October 9, 2019 03:14 PM UTC

Hi guys,

I have 2 issues:

1) 

     I Have the following result from my database:
                                      
     When the first row have a null values, the method takes all the values as if they were text, and export the excel in this way:
                               
     But i need this columns on number format, so i have to open the document and modify the format of the cells.
     Is there any way to export it in numerical format even though the first row have null values?

2)
     I Have the following result from my database:
               
     I have a null row in the middle of the result, so when i trying to export this data to excel, i suppose the method try to convert null columns( 5 to 9) to number and i get      the follow error:

     Is there any way to export it that result to excel or i need to always parse the null values to '0'?

Thanks for your help,

Best regards.

Hi Kevin, 

Greeting from Syncfusion. 

Issue 1 
When the first row have a null values, the method takes all the values as if they were text, and export the excel in this way: 

But i need this columns on number format, so i have to open the document and modify the format of the cells. 
     Is there any way to export it in numerical format even though the first row have null values? 

We are able to reproduce the issue and validating it currently. We will provide further details on 14th October 2019. 

Issue 2 
I have a null row in the middle of the result, so when i trying to export this data to excel, i suppose the method try to convert null columns( 5 to 9) to number and i get      the follow error: 

 Is there any way to export it that result to excel or i need to always parse the null values to '0'? 
We are unable to reproduce the reported “Object cannot be cast from DBNull to other types” exception, but we are facing “Specified cast is not valid” exception.  


We have prepared simple sample to cover both the issues and the sample can be downloaded from the below link.  

Kindly look into the sample and let us know if your scenario is understood properly. If not, we request you to modify the sample to reproduce the issue and get back to us with issue reproducing sample. This will help us to investigate further and provide prompt solution at the earliest. 

Regards, 
Keerthi.

Hi Kevin, 

Thanks for the patience. 

We have fixed both the issues reported in this forum. We request you to use the following code snippet along with the custom assemblies to fix the issues.  

Code snippet: 

using (ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine()) 
  { 
       IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel; 
       application.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2013; 
       IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Create(1); 
       IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0]; 
       ExcelImportDataOptions importDataOptions = new ExcelImportDataOptions(); 
       importDataOptions.FirstRow = 2; 
       importDataOptions.FirstColumn = 1; 
       importDataOptions.IncludeHeader = false; 
       importDataOptions.PreserveTypes = false; 
 
       //Import the data to worksheet 
       IList<object> reports = GetSalesReports1(); 
       worksheet.ImportData(reports, importDataOptions); 
      workbook.SaveAs("ImportFromDT.xlsx"); 
              
  } 


We request you to try these custom assemblies and let you know if the issues are resolved. 

This fix will be included in our upcoming release version 17.3  SP -1 which will be rolled out by end of October 2019. 
            
Regards,            
Keerthi.

Hi Kevin, 

The patch for release version v17.3.0.26 with fix to resolve the reported issues can be downloaded from the following link. 

Recommended approach - exe will perform automatic configuration                   
Please find the patch setup from below location:                                
  
Advanced approach – use only if you have specific needs and can directly replace existing assemblies for your build environment                   
Please find the patch assemblies alone from below location:                          

             
Assembly Version: 17.3.0.26 
             
Installation Directions :  
This patch should replace Syncfusion.XlsIO.Portable.dll under the following folder.                    
$system drive:\ Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\$Version # \precompiledassemblies\$Version#\4.6

To automatically run the Assembly Manager, please check the Run assembly manager checkbox option while installing the patch. If this option is unchecked, the patch will replace the assemblies in precompiled assemblies’ folder only. Then, you will have to manually copy and paste them to the preferred location or you will have to run the Syncfusion Assembly Manager application (available from the Syncfusion Dashboard, installed as a shortcut in the Application menu) to re-install assemblies.

Hi Guys,

I have downloaded the last version of XlsIO from nuget (Syncfusion.XlsIO.Net.Core 17.4.0.46) and i have the 2 issues again.

For the last reply you guys tell me "The fix for this issue will be included in our release version 17.4 which will be rolled out end of December 2019.", but i'm testing this patch and the fix is not included, so i'm going to use the patch on this link:


Please let me know when the fix was included in some patch, so i can use the last version of XlsIO.

Really thanks for your time.

Best regards,
