Calculate formula after re-setting formula in a cell using Aspose.Cells for .NET in C#


I’m using Aspose.Cells You find my testfile attached.

In cell A2 there is a formula"=(“Tabelle1!B”&ROW()-1)“
In my testfile I just reSet this formula to the same cell and try to calculate, but the string value isn’t correct.

please can you check this:

Cell c = workbook.Worksheets[0].Cells[“A2”];
// #1

// Get string value. OK

string value = c.StringValue;

// Re-Set Formula

c.Formula = c.Formula;

// Calc


// StringValue = #Value!

string value2 = c.StringValue;

// #2

// ReSet Formula again

c.Formula = c.Formula;

// Calc again


// StringValue= 8

string value3 = c.StringValue;

I have no problem with this formula without the “-1” at the end.
”=(“Tabelle1!B”&ROW())" works

By the way.. is there any chance to calculate just one formula, not the hole workbook? something like


I'm not sure if it is possible?

Thank you

Thank you!

The issues you have found earlier (filed as CELLSNET-10036) have been fixed in this update.

Note: Just for your knowledge. In the new release v4.8.0, we have merged Aspose.Grid suite to Aspose.Cells for .NET msi installer as Aspose.Grid would be no longer offered as a separate product now. You need to install the installer (uninstall older one first if you have) and use only Aspose.Cells.dll library in your project for your need. You may also take advantage using Aspose.Cells Grid suite though.
