I am using spire.Office (Xls and PdfConverter etc) in a pop email collection system which is intended to automatically convert incoming attachments to pdf for inclusion to a document management system backend.

Anyway there is a particular xlsx file being sent in by a regular user which tends to break my script.

My code is as follows:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
workbook.Version = ExcelVersion.Version2007;
PdfConverter pdfConverter = new PdfConverter(workbook);
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();
pdfDocument.PageSettings.Orientation = Spire.Pdf.PdfPageOrientation.Portrait;
pdfDocument.PageSettings.Size = Spire.Pdf.PdfPageSize.A3;
pdfDocument.PageSettings.Margins.All = 10;
PdfConverterSettings settings = new PdfConverterSettings();
settings.TemplateDocument = pdfDocument;
settings.DisplayGridLines = PdfConverterSettings.GridLinesDisplayStyle.Invisible;
settings.EmbedFonts = true;
settings.ExportDocumentProperties = true;
pdfDocument = pdfConverter.Convert(settings);
pdfDocument.SaveToFile(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/messages/") + msgAttach.Msg_id.ToString() + ".pdf");

The offending xlsx file is attached. I know it is a nonsensical use of Excel for the contents of the file but I am unable to control that aspect unfortunately. Sorry the forum doesnt allow me to attach xlsx files.

The error I am getting is as follows:
