A checkmark character is changed to an "a" in some cells

On attached file when converted the output has “a” characters instead of the check-mark characters that appear in the excel doc.

Thanks for using Aspose.Cells.

Please check "Marlett" font is installed on your system.

If "Marlett" font is already installed and check marks are still not being converted, please try the following code:

//Windows fonts dir
FontConfigs.SetFontFolder("C:\\Windows\\Fonts", false);
Workbook wb = new Workbook(srcFile);

Ok thanks for the reply. We will attempt the above and see what we get.
