This is a lightweight Excel Reader using DocumentFormat.OpenXml. It just does one thing: Read the content of a cell and return it as a string.

The main method ReadCell just requires:

  • The reference to the spreadsheet (either by the path of the Excel file or using directly a SpreadSheet from DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Spreadsheet
  • The number of the worksheet where the cell is
  • The number of the row
  • The name of the column

With these new release, columns are not required to be passed by number. Just pass the name of the column as a string: "AB". This makes more intuitive the use of the library but above all solve some issues when reading empty cells.
