Asked On April 20, 2010 07:35 AM UTC

I try to fill a column by cells with specified font and save a file by "111.xls" (attached). Then I open it in Excel 2003 and select a range of cells that contains a colored text and set a new font color. After saving as new file fnd open it in Excel, I have a message "Excel deleted some formats". Syncfusion can open this file, but when I try to operate with RichText of colored columns, this throws an Exception "Index out of range". Excel 2007 have not any problems.

Please help.

ExcelEngine engine = new ExcelEngine();

IApplication app = engine.Excel;

IWorkbook wbk = app.Workbooks.Create();

IWorksheet wsh = wbk.Worksheets[0];

IFont redFnt = wbk.CreateFont();
redFnt.Color = ExcelKnownColors.Rose;

for (int i = 0; i < 123; i++)

wsh[i + 3, 3].RichText.BeginUpdate();

wsh[i + 3, 3].RichText.Append("TXT" + i.ToString(), redFnt);

wsh[i + 3, 3].RichText.EndUpdate();
