     This technical tip show how developers can add hyperlinks to link data inside an Excel file their Android applications using Aspose.Cell for Android. A hyperlink links two entities. Everybody is familiar with hyperlinks because they are used extensively on the Internet. Using Aspose.Cells, developers can create different kinds of hyperlinks in Excel files. This article discusses what types of hyperlinks are supported in Aspose.Cells and how to use them.

				This technical tip show how developers can Load Visible Sheets Only and Skip Invisible Sheet while Loading Workbook inside Android applications. While loading a Workbook sometimes you may only need data in visible worksheets in a workbook. Aspose.Cells allows you to skip data in invisible worksheets while loading a workbook. The class LoadDataOptions provides a property OnlyVisibleWorksheet which allows us to skip invisible sheets. The sheets will be loaded, but all cell values will remain null.
// The following code demonstrates how to load visible sheets only.
File sdDir = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory();
String sdPath = sdDir.getCanonicalPath();
String filePath = sdPath + "/Sample.out.xlsx"
// Create a sample workbook
// and put some data in first cell of all 3 sheets
Workbook createWorkbook = new Workbook();
// Keep Sheet3 invisible
// Load the sample workbook
LoadDataOption loadDataOption = new LoadDataOption();
LoadOptions loadOptions = new LoadOptions();
Workbook loadWorkbook = new Workbook(samplePath, loadOptions);
System.out.println("Sheet1: A1: " + loadWorkbook.getWorksheets().get("Sheet1").getCells().get("A1").getValue());
System.out.println("Sheet2: A1: " + loadWorkbook.getWorksheets().get("Sheet2").getCells().get("A1").getValue());
System.out.println("Sheet3: A1: " + loadWorkbook.getWorksheets().get("Sheet3").getCells().get("A1").getValue());
System.out.println("Data is not loaded from invisible sheet");
