If you want to access Microsoft Office files from within your .NET, SharePoint or Java applications, Aspose can help. Choose only the components you need or take advantage of comprehensive Aspose.Total suites for .NET, Java, SharePoint, JasperReports and SQL Server Reporting Services for complete application design flexibility.
“With Aspose, developers can manage a number of files they can’t natively access through Visual Studio. Aspose is the universal key to files, for developers,” said Danny Cooper, Associate Director of Aspose’s North American business operations.
Although .NET developers can use Microsoft Office Automation to build applications that access Microsoft Office files, Microsoft Office must be present on all client machines for that to work. To complicate matters further, there is no license model for server-side automation. With Aspose components, developers can create, modify, convert, print and combine Microsoft Office files from within their applications without any reliance on Microsoft Office.
“Rather than using Microsoft Office Automation or spending unnecessary time building your own document converters, you can use our .NET components to get access to and control over the most common business file formats,” said Cooper.
Aspose.Cells for Spreadsheets
With Aspose.Cells for .NET, application users can read, write and manipulate spreadsheets without Microsoft Excel. Aspose.Cells supports all popular Microsoft Office 97–2010 file formats including, XLS, XLSX, SpreadsheetML, CSV, tab-delimited, HTML and others.
Developers can export data, format spreadsheets, import images, create or import charts, and apply complex formulas. They also have complete control over attributes, cell styles and number formats. The included APIs can be used to create and manipulate standard and custom 2D and 3D chart types. Further, drawing objects such as comments, pictures, OLE Objects, shapes and controls can be added to the cells.
Aspose.Words for Document Files
Aspose.Words for .NET allows users to generate, modify, convert, render and print documents without using Microsoft Word. Using Aspose.Words, developers can allow users to open and save DOC, OOXML, RTF, WordprocessingML, HTML, MHTML, TXT and OpenDocument documents from within their applications. They can also allow users to save any document as a PDF, XPS or EPUB file.
