Hi,

I’ve added a file as a resource to a project.  The file is an Excel document.

I’m trying to use this within the ASPose Cells framework.  Their documentation states it can open a file from a file stream.  However I’m at a complete loss as to how to get from a resource to a file stream?

Does anybody have any snippets they could share?

Here is the code that I have:

//Create a Stream object
FileStream fstream = new FileStream("C:\\book1.xls", FileMode.Open);

//Creating a Workbook object, open the file from a Stream object
//that contains the content of file and it should support seeking
Workbook workbook = new Workbook(fstream);

Open in new window

from http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/cellsnet/Opening+an+Excel+File:

//Opening an Excel file as a stream
FileStream fs = File.OpenRead("c:\\book1.xls");

//Loading the Excel file contents into the control from a stream
gridDesktop1.ImportExcelFile(fs);

//Closing stream
fs.Close();
