Cannot do that because that will require too many changes in the application.


Why? How are you populating your Excel file?
Are you sure this is the correct approach? I'm not sure that creating larger files is a good practice. Are you sure you can't change that in the options?

Another option would be use an older version of Excel to create the file Hehe

Add a column named IgnoreThisRow, and set it to true for empty rows, false for real rows.

There seems to be something fundamentally poorly designed given all the challenges you are facing here. You have a web site with over 100,000 users all locked into a specific version of Excel? You are asking for problems with that.

How are you generating this excel? via SQL? and getting it by file path to the web? what error are you seeing, exactly ? If you can manage to input lines with 0, can't you input lines with a single space?
I think we need more info on your problem

Using .Net app to connect to sql and get the data using store proc, creating excel file in the app and opening the file. There are no problems with this process. It is just that when the excel file that is produced is small size, excel does not open the file. This is a known issue and the workaround is to create empty rows in excel so that it increases the file and opens the file without any issues.
