    Opening a Spread XML File
    In This Topic

    Spread can save data or data and formatting to an XML file or a stream, which you can then open back into the FpSpread component. You can open a Spread XML file or stream of an entire component or a specific sheet.

    You can also open a file from inside Spread Designer.

    Refer to the SheetView class Open method to open a specific sheet. Use the FpSpread Open method to open the entire control.

    For instructions for saving Spread XML files, see Saving to a Spread XML File.

    Using Code

    Use the FpSpread component’s Open method, specifying the path and file name of the Spread XML file to open or the Stream object to open.
