Get a Spreadsheet’s Application Version
Microsoft Excel application allows the user to save spreadsheets to different formats corresponding to the application versions such as Microsoft Excel version 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013. This information is embedded in the spreadsheet, and can be used for version identification. Aspose.Cells for Java now provides the means to get and set this information with the BuiltInDocumentPropertyCollection.Version property. Check the detailed article on Getting the Version Number of the Application that Created the Excel Document.
Get Worksheet Instance of the Chart
Before the release of Aspose.Cells for Java 8.2.2, retrieving the Worksheet instance from the Chart object was not possible. The latest version has made this possible by exposing the Worksheet property for the Chart class. Please check the usage scenario below and the detailed article on Getting Worksheet of a Chart.
//Load a spreadsheet into an instance of Workbook Workbook workbook = new Workbook("sample.xlsx"); //Get an instance of Chart from the collection of Charts in a Worksheet Chart chart = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0).getCharts().get(0); //Get the instance of Worksheet in which the Chart object was contained Worksheet worksheet = chart.getWorksheet(); //Display Worksheet name System.out.println("Chart's Sheet Name: " + worksheet.getName());
