Aspose breaks cell references in formulas after cut and insert

Hi Team,

We were planning to use the new version of Aspose (23.8), but we noticed that our tests are failing. After some investigation, I found that InsertCutCells changes the formulas and the its cell address references. I believe this is due to a change in Aspose.cells 23.6, probably this one :

CELLSNET-53406	InsertCutCells - Cutting rows and then inserting them somewhere else does not maintain formula references	Bug

Here is what happens along with a test scenario. I have a Mode!E1 and it’s formula is : =SUM(E6,E7 ,E8)
if I cut the Row 1 and insert it in row 9, it’ll still keep the same formula (i.e. SUM(E6,E7,E8)), but if I do the same thing with Aspose, the Formula changes to =SUM(E13,E14,E15) !
NOTE: I’ve defined a name for the entire row 1 and get the range using the row name.

This is my code :

    var model = workbook.Worksheets["Model"];

    var stockPriceRow = workbook.Worksheets.Names["MO_VA_StockPrice_TradingCurrency"];
    var sourceRange = workbook.Worksheets.GetRangeByName(stockPriceRow.FullText);
    var destinationRange = workbook.Worksheets["Model"].Cells.CreateRange("9:9");

    model.Cells.InsertCutCells(sourceRange, destinationRange.FirstRow, destinationRange.FirstColumn, ShiftType.Down);

    var calculationOptions = new CalculationOptions { IgnoreError = true };

This is my test workbook. (6.4 KB)

Thank you
