I just downloaded closedXML so I'm trying to get used to it. I tried to open an already existing excel file (.xls). I just created an excel file. Nothing in it...

When i tried to open it with this line :

var workbook = new XLWorkbook(excelFilePath); 

excelFilePath contains the property filename of the openFileDialog wich is "C:\\Classeur1.xls"

I get this error ont the line stated earlier: File contains corrupted data.

Thank you

Please create an entry in the Issue Tracker tab and attach the file you're trying to load. Please include your locale.

The file you're trying to open is for an older version of Excel. ClosedXML only works with Excel 2007/2010 files. I don't think it will ever support .xls files.
