Call this Open method to open a document from the server’s file system. When you open a document for the first time, the control loads it to the server’s memory and generates a DocumentId from the pathToDocument parameter value.

If the document is already open, the method activates the document stored in the server’s memory.


We recommend that you do not use the LoadDocument method to open a document. When you call this method, the ASPxSpreadsheet does not receive information about the opened document and cannot work with it correctly.
