Migration Tip Migration to Aspose.Words for .NET 9.2 or Higher
Aspose.Words for .NET and Java 10 is coming ever closer. Now is a good time to make sure that your projects are up-to-date and ready for the next step up. We know how annoying it is when an API that you have implemented changes so we try to keep changes down to a minimum. With Aspose.Words for .NET 9.2 we had to make a couple of small changes to make the API better organised and to help the autoporting work we are doing on the Java platform. This article explains the differences and how to update your code. Read the migration tip at: http://www.aspose.com/documentation/.net-components/aspose.cells-for-.net/auto-filter-data.html
