SpreadsheetGear Updates Microsoft Excel Compatible Spreadsheet Component for ASP.NET and Windows Forms


LENEXA, KS, January 9th, 2007 - Today, SpreadsheetGear LLC announced the immediate availability of SpreadsheetGear for .NET 2006 v2.5, a royalty free Microsoft Excel compatible spreadsheet component built by industry veterans for any Microsoft .NET Framework solution. SpreadsheetGear for .NET 2006 v2.5 features the fastest and most complete Excel compatible calculation engine as well as rich Windows Forms Spreadsheet Controls, giving Microsoft .NET developers the ability to create, read, modify, view, edit, format, calculate, print and write Microsoft Excel workbooks without Excel.


“SpreadsheetGear for .NET 1.0 enabled developers to deliver richly formatted Excel reports, evaluate complex Excel based models and business rules, as well as dynamically move data and formatting between Excel workbooks and virtually any other form. SpreadsheetGear for .NET 2006 v2 built upon this solid foundation with rich Windows Forms controls. SpreadsheetGear for .NET 2006 v2.5 adds support for cell comments, data validation, pictures, text boxes, form controls, autoshapes and more, enabling developers to create richer and easier to use applications,” according to Terry Erickson, Chief Software Architect, SpreadsheetGear LLC.


"We just wanted you to know how thrilled we are by the performance we are seeing with SpreadsheetGear for .NET 2006.  A 6,000 KB Excel workbook is loading into the WorkbookView control in less than a second,” said Amy Tate, Chief .NET Architect of Applied OLAP, Inc. “This is over 100 times faster than other controls we’ve tested. That difference makes it possible for us to develop and release a viable product with the Microsoft .NET Framework."


“We have enjoyed significant growth in revenue and profitability throughout 2006, and we remain committed to delivering the most reliable, most scalable and highest performance spreadsheet technology backed up by the highest quality of customer support,” said Joe Erickson, Founder and CEO, SpreadsheetGear LLC.
