Hi Umair, 
Good day to you. 
We would like to suggest that you can open an excel file from the server using open method of spreadsheet control after http request. We have prepared a sample based on your requirement, please refer the below sample link and code snippet. 
loadExcel(args: Event) { 
    let request: XMLHttpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest(); 
    request.responseType = "blob"; 
    request.onload = () => { 
      let file: File = new File([request.response], (args.target as HTMLSelectElement).value + ".xlsx"); 
      this.spreadsheetObj.open({ file: file as any }); 
    request.open("GET", "http://localhost:53142/Files/" + (args.target as HTMLSelectElement).value + ".xlsx");

Hi Umair, 
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 
We can reproduce the reported issue at our end and this is already known issue in our end. We will include the fix for this issue in our next patch release. We suggest you use our Volume 4 main release version (17.4.39) and this issue is not replicated in this version (17.4.39). We have created the sample for your reported query (17.4.39) in that we have using openComplete event. This event triggered on when data is loaded on spreadsheet, in this way you can achieve your requirement. Please refer the below sample and our documentation link.
