SpreadProcessing: Support for Macro-Enabled Workbooks (xlsm)
Add support for preserving and exporting the macros in a macro-enabled workbook.

Macros are pieces of code written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) which are used to automate repetitive tasks in excel. The macros are part of the excel file. When a file contains a macro its extension becomes xlsm.

SpreadProcessing should be able to import and export xlsm files and edit the macros in them.

Same here ... I need to fill Excel files provided by my client's client with data from an ERP system. I can read the "empty" xlsm files and fill the workbook but I can't save the workbook as .xlsm again. So instead of just attaching the workbook to an email, my client has to open the workbook, open an original workbook with the macros, copy the contents, paste the contents, save, close, close and _now_ there is a notebook which can be mailed back.

Highly recommend Telerik to bring this feature in your future release. Our client has a requirement to edit xlsm and download xlsm file, for which currently we do not have any option. 

 

Thanks &  Regards,

Anjaly

The lack of this functionality forces us at ACTIVETECH to use another external component that allows us to read and record a workbook, preserving all the macros already in the workbook.
We would love to be able to use only the components provided by Telerik AJAX.
