The public API is still not stable and it is a very good idea to read release notes and migration guide before each update.

Frequent answers

  • ClosedXML is not thread-safe. There is no guarantee that parallel operations will work. The underlying OpenXML library is also not thread-safe.
  • If you get an exception The type initializer for 'Gdip' threw an exception. on Linux, you have to upgrade to 0.97+.

What can you do with this?

ClosedXML allows you to create Excel files without the Excel application. The typical example is creating Excel reports on a web server.

Example:

using (var workbook = new XLWorkbook())
{
    var worksheet = workbook.Worksheets.Add("Sample Sheet");
    worksheet.Cell("A1").Value = "Hello World!";
    worksheet.Cell("A2").FormulaA1 = "=MID(A1, 7, 5)";
    workbook.SaveAs("HelloWorld.xlsx");
}
