Object Refernce not set to an instance of an object

Mar 18, 2011 at 5:50 PM

Hi all,


I developed a custom ASP.NET froms to integrate them in a sharepoint application, to update an Excel file from these Forms.

I am getting a problem with the file wich is located in a shared folder. When i get the ExcelPackage, i don't have a problem but wehn accessing to a specific Range of cells, i don't get anything.

Here is My code


           FileInfo info = new FileInfo(filePath);
            using (ExcelPackage exPckg = new ExcelPackage(info))
                int delay = int.Parse(ICUtilities.GetConfigValue(SPContext.Current.Web, "Delay"));

               //Here i'm obliged to wait some time to get the instance of the worksheets, else it catch an exception              

                WaitUntilExcelOK(exPckg, delay);
                var exWshts = exPckg.Workbook.Worksheets[workSheet];
                //Here i am getting the issue exWshts.Celss : Object Refrence not set to an instance of an object.
                var exRange = exWshts.Cells[rowBegin, columnCode, rowEnd, columnCode];

                var enumRange = exRange.GetEnumerator();


Is there something wrong in my code. Why i am able to get the excel file, the worksheet but not the Cells?

Could you help me it's very urgent !!!

Thank you!

First make sure you use the latest version (there has been a few issues related to defined names previously). Make sure you dont use any unsupported features in your template (have a look at the FAQ).
