Hi Shakeel,

I was wrong, the issue exists whith Aspose Cells For Java 7.3.1.

The issue is :

Low boder on C6:J6, C11:U11 and C15:J15

- which is "bold" in excel file (EC_TBX100_GIS_1008840_Gis. 1008840_Eq.xlsx joined previously)

- is still "bold" when you save as pdf in EXCEL (EC_TBX100_GIS_1008840_Gis. 1008840_Eq_EXCEL.pdf joined previously)

- but is not "bold" when you save as pdf in Aspose (EC_TBX100_GIS_1008840_Gis. 1008840_Eq_ASPOSE.pdf joined previously)
