Cell formula is not visible


I have a problem with cell formula, see code:

Workbook wb = new Workbook(“bugstatistics_v6.xlsx”);
var customWs = wb.Worksheets[“CUSTOM”];
var formula = customWs.Cells[“I2”].Formula;

when I open bugstatistics_v6.xlsx in excel, formula is visible.
What could be the reason?

Hi Dmitry,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

We were able to observe this issue after running your code using the latest version: Aspose.Cells
for .NET v8.1.1.3
with your source file.

The cell I2 inside the sheet (CUSTOM) has a formula (=IF(LEN(DATA!I2)=0,VLOOKUP(J2,REF_DATA!$A$1:$C$500,3,FALSE)+14,DATA!I2)) but Cell.Formula is returning null.

We have logged this issue in our database for investigation. We will look into it and fix this issue. Once, the issue is resolved or we have some other update for you, we will let you know asap.

This issue has been logged as CELLSNET-42853.

After some comparing I’ve found that the problem is related to data xml stored inside bugstatistics_v6.xlsx (bugstatistics_v6.xlsx\xl\worksheets\sheet3.xml):
I2 cell is stored as following:
If I change t=“s” to t=“e”:
formula become visible from the code.
Maybe this could help.
