Cell.StringValue resolves incorrectly for one custom formatting


We’ve encountered an issue with Cell.StringValue calculation.

In the attached “TestFile.xlsx”, the A1 cell displays the Cell.StringValue as 1", with a trailing " character.

The cell uses the following custom formatting: #,##0"";(#,##0);"- "

We are using Aspose.Cells version

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Hi Mihai,

Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

We were able to observe this issue with the following code using the latest version: Aspose.Cells
for .NET v7.7.2.3
. The Cell.StringValue should be 1 instead of 1" for the given cell A1 with the applied custom formatting.

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-42444.


string filePath = @“F:\Shak-Data-RW\Downloads\TestFile.xlsx”;

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(filePath);

Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

Cell cell = worksheet.Cells[“A1”];




I would like to add further. As we have logged a ticket “CELLSNET-42444” for the issue, so we will investigate it on our end soon. In the mean time, as a workaround, you may try to use Cell.Value attribute instead of Cell.StringValue. I have tested it with your file and it works fine.

Thank you.
