How to validate an Excel XLSX Spreadsheet in Javascript

Spreadsheet validation can open up some very useful possibilities. This is normally an arduous process, but not today! We are going to be all finished in just a handful of minutes.

To import our client, this script tag needs to be added to our HTML file or between the head tags of our page.

<script src="https://cdn.cloudmersive.com/jsclient/cloudmersive-document-convert-client.js"></script>

OK, that allows use to call this validation function:

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ValidateDocumentApi();var inputFile = "/path/to/file"; // File | Input file to perform the operation on.var callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.validateDocumentXlsxValidation(inputFile, callback);
