Description

In this article, we will explain how to deploy Telerik Reporting with a newer OpenXML SDK version.

Solution

Telerik Reporting OpenXML rendering extensions (XLSX, DOCX and PPTX) are build with Open XML SDK 2.0 for Microsoft Office (DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll v.2.0.5022.0).

Still, if needed, you can use newer Open XML SDK version. Add a binding redirect into your configuration file to point that you are using a newer version:

<configuration>
  <runtime>
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
      <dependentAssembly>
        <assemblyIdentity name="DocumentFormat.OpenXml"
                         publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35"
                         culture="neutral" />
        <bindingRedirect oldVersion="2.0.5022.0"
                        newVersion="2.5.5631.0"/>
      </dependentAssembly>
    </assemblyBinding>
  </runtime>
...

In newer versions, the DocumentFormat.OpenXml assembly the PublicKeyToken is changed. Thus, if you are using DocumentFormat.OpenXml of version 2.7.2.0, you have to reference Telerik.Reporting.OpenXmlRendering.2.7.2.

For even newer versions add the required binding redirect as shown in the following example configuration for DocumentFormat.OpenXml 2.8.1.0:

<configuration>
  <runtime>
    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
       <dependentAssembly>
          <assemblyIdentity name="DocumentFormat.OpenXml" publicKeyToken="8fb06cb64d019a17" culture="neutral" />
          <bindingRedirect oldVersion="2.7.2.0" newVersion="2.8.1.0" />
       </dependentAssembly>
    </assemblyBinding>
  </runtime>
...
