Read Cell : Malformed URI is embedded as a hyperlink in the document


I’ve checked my excel that it has no hyperlinks and no email address. but i keep getting this error message. I’ve downloaded a package “PDFtoExcelConversion” and its this step that caused the error with the message “Malformed URI is embedded as a hyperlink…”. It was working for months but today it doesnt work, after i amended some cells in my excel file.

RemoteException wrapping DocumentFormat.OpenXml.Packaging.OpenXmlPackageException: Invalid Hyperlink: Malformed URI is embedded as a hyperlink in the document.
