When I try to run this simple program.


using (ExcelPackage package = new ExcelPackage(existingFile))
            ExcelWorksheet worksheet = package.Workbook.Worksheets["Sheet1"];
            worksheet.Cells["A1"].Value = "TEST";
I get the following error when the save command is called.
[InvalidOperationException: Specified part does not exist in the package.]

The same error occurs when I try to use SaveAs. I am using version and the 
same error also occurs using version  Any ideas on what might be causing this problem?

I have figured out that the problem had to do with the excel file I was working with.  It contained lots of complex formulas and formatting which I believe were causing problems.  When I tried working with a simplified version of the file it worked as expected.
