I have a few paragraphs of formatted text inside a text box on an excel worksheet. Is it possible to read and write to this text using XlsIO?

I am able to access the text box object using the Shapes collection, however, cannot find a way to read and write the text inside the text box. I believe the text box is an OLEObject and that is why the text cannot be accessed easily eg via a .Text property.

Hi SH,

Thanks for your interest in Essential XlsIO.

Currently we do not have support to write text inside the text box using XlsIO. We already have a feature request [Fr# 1300] regarding this issue. Here is the feature request link:


Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please let me know if you have any other queries.

Best Regards,
