EasyXLS

Document properties

EasyXLS™ library provides methods for handling the file properties of an Excel document.

There are two kinds of properties that can be defined, preset document properties and custom document properties.

The preset document properties includes title, subject, categories, comments, author, company, manager, keywords, revision number and others.

By using custom document properties feature you can define your own document properties. You can assign a text, date, or numeric value to custom file properties, and you can also assign them the values "Yes" or "No."

EasyXLS allows you to export the document properties for an Excel file. It also allows you to read the document properties of an Excel file.
