if we use any property to change/set, autofilter, panes and so on, and save the file as excel 2003, then the gridlines a disappear???

Thx in advance,

Did mean that you want to disappear the border of all cells?

Dear Harry,

we generate from a ssrs-server the excel-file, download them and then, based on a configuration, we changed different things, like add panes, or autofilter and so on. if we apply these features to the downloaded excel-file from ssrs then the gridlines disappear. the normal gridlines not the border of cells.

here are the testfiles/code to verifiy the bug:

Public Sub TestMethodOpenAndSave()

Dim wb As XlsHelper.WorkbookHandler = Nothing
Dim fileName As String = String.Empty
Dim fileNameTemplate As String = String.Empty

Dim names As New List(Of XlsHelper.WorksheetName)
names.Add(New XlsHelper.WorksheetName(0, "Index"))
names.Add(New XlsHelper.WorksheetName(1, "Overview"))
names.Add(New XlsHelper.WorksheetName(2, "Details"))

Dim autoFilters As New List(Of XlsHelper.AutoFilter)
autoFilters.Add(New XlsHelper.AutoFilter(2, 8, 1))

Dim freezedPanes As New List(Of XlsHelper.FreezedPane)
freezedPanes.Add(New XlsHelper.FreezedPane(2, 9, 1))

fileNameTemplate = System.IO.Path.Combine(_TEST_DIRECTORY, "test.xls")
fileName = System.IO.Path.Combine(_TEST_DIRECTORY, String.Format("MyExcelFile97to2003_{0}.xls", Now.ToString("yyyyMMddHHmmss")))
IO.File.Copy(fileNameTemplate, fileName)
wb = New XlsHelper.WorkbookHandler(fileName, XlsHelper.XlsHelper.ExcelVersion.Version97to2003)



End Sub
