Aspose Cells Java : Trying to set all cells of a column to format: Number

Hi,

I am trying to set all cells of a column to format: Number.
My code:

import com.aspose.cells.*;

public class asposeSetColumnTypeNumber {

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {


	Workbook wb = new Workbook();
	Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().add("temp");
	
	Style columnStyle = ws.getCells().getColumns().get(0).getStyle();
	StyleFlag columnStyleFlag = new StyleFlag();
	columnStyleFlag.setNumberFormat(true);
	ws.getCells().getColumns().get(0).applyStyle(columnStyle, columnStyleFlag);

	wb.save("C:\\Users\\sandipan.ghosh\\Desktop\\Test.xlsx");
	System.out.println("Completed.");
}

}

But the code doesn’t work. What am i doing wrong?

@sandipanghosh111,

Thanks for the code segment.

What numbers formatting you are applying? Seeing your sample code, well, you are missing the line on what style/formatting you are applying as I could not spot it. So, you should specify your desired numbers formatting for the style, see the line in bold for your reference:
e.g
Sample code:


Style columnStyle = ws.getCells().getColumns().get(0).getStyle();
columnStyle.setCustom(“0.00”);//This will apply the numbers formattings in such a way that it will set two decimal points for each value
StyleFlag columnStyleFlag = new StyleFlag();
columnStyleFlag.setNumberFormat(true);
ws.getCells().getColumns().get(0).applyStyle(columnStyle, columnStyleFlag);

Hope, this helps a bit.

Thanks. It worked.
