    What new features does the Spread has to support Macros and/or VBA. Do you have any document that deeply explains the enhancements? I really need an answer because many of the tabular worksheets I pretend to use with Spread are fully implemented with VBA.

    Does the Spread preserves the NAMES of cell ranges?

    Thank you in advance

    Version 5 of Spread can load Excel files containing macros,
    VBA code, and pivot tables using the new ExcelOpenFlags.DocumentCaching,
    and you can make changes to the spreadsheets and save them to Excel
    using ExcelSaveFlags.DocumentCaching, and it will preserve the
    unsupported content in the Excel file.

    And regarding the list of Enhancements from the previous release you can have a look at Read Me file, here is the list of the same from Read Me:-
