Aspose.Cells for .NET 8.0.0 has been released. This new release supports optimizing memory use when working with big Microsoft Excel files that have large data sets. When building a workbook with a large data set, or reading a big template file, the total amount of RAM the process will take is always a concern. Aspose.Cells provide measures which can be adopted to cope with this challenge. Aspose.Cells provides some relevant options and API calls to lower, reduce and optimize memory usage accordingly. For example, the MemorySetting.MemoryPreference option optimizes memory use for the data in cells to decrease the overall memory cost.
Aspose.Cells can allows export visible rows data only from a worksheet. Sometimes you need to export data in such a way that the data of only visible rows is be exported (excluding hidden rows). Aspose.Cells provides a way to achieve this. You can use the ExportTableOptions.PlotVisibleRows option to specify that you want to export visible rows data only.
There is another valuable Microsoft Excel feature to show formulas instead of values in a worksheet. You can show formulas instead of the calculated values in Microsoft Excel by selecting the Formulas menu, then Show Formulas. Once this option is enabled, Microsoft Excel will display formulas inside the worksheet. You can achieve this using Aspose.Cells APIs. It provides a Worksheet.ShowFormulas property which you can set to true to set Microsoft Excel to display formulas.
