Hi Ivan,

Thanks for your interest in Essential XlsIO.

The file that you have attached is a text (tab delimited) document but is renamed with an .xls extension. Please note that you need to specify the string separator value when opening such documents. Here is the sample for your reference:


Could you please specify correct delimiter when opening such excel files and let me know the problem still exists?
