Hi,
I want to check if relevant SpreadsheetDocument is existing or not, per given filepath (having both full path and document name). Only if the file does not exist, then I create it. Otherwise, I just open it. What to adjust below?
        public static void CreateSpreadsheetWorkbook(string filepath,string SheetName0)
        {
                SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.
                    Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);

try use System.IO.File.Exists to check the existence of the file, like:

public static void CreateSpreadsheetWorkbook(string filepath,string SheetName0)
        {
            if (System.IO.File.Exists(filepath) == false) { // file does not exist
                SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.
                    Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);

due to last line below?
        public static void CreateSpreadsheetWorkbook(string filepath,string SheetName0)
        {
                SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.
                    Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);

                if (System.IO.File.Exists(filepath) == false)
                {
                    // Create a spreadsheet document by supplying the filepath.
                    // By default, AutoSave = true, Editable = true, and Type = xlsx.
                    SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.
                        Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);
                }
                else
                    SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.Open(filepath, false);

try this instead (quick guess):
        public static void CreateSpreadsheetWorkbook(string filepath,string SheetName0)
        {
                if (System.IO.File.Exists(filepath) == false)
                {
                    // Create a spreadsheet document by supplying the filepath.
                    // By default, AutoSave = true, Editable = true, and Type = xlsx.
                    SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.
                        Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);
                }
                else 
              {
                    SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.Open(filepath, false);
            }
}
