public bool LoadDocument(
    Stream stream


Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream object that is the stream used to load a document.


Type Description

true if the document is loaded succesfully; otherwise, false.


The target stream can use a non-seekable stream to load a document. In this case, the stream buffers automatically.

The format of the document loaded using this LoadDocument method overload is detected automatically by the built-in IFormatDetectorService implementation. The following formats can be detected:

  • XLSX, XLSB, XLSM, XLTX, XLTM (non encrypted files only);
  • XLS, XLT;
  • XML Spreadsheet 2003;
  • CSV, TXT (only if loaded from a FileStream instance).

If the format detection fails, an ISpreadsheetComponent.InvalidFormatException is raised.
