cells.copyCellRange fails to copy array formula correctly


We have found another case where copying of cells containing array formulas does not work as expected.

See attached image to see detailed description of the problem.

Template file together with the sample code will reproduce the issue.

Sample code:
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

import com.aspose.cells.AsposeLicenseException;
import com.aspose.cells.Cells;
import com.aspose.cells.CellsHelper;
import com.aspose.cells.License;
import com.aspose.cells.Workbook;

public class ExpandingArrayFormula3 {

private static void expandColumn(Cells cells, int row, int column, int len){

cells.insertRangeShiftDown(row, column, row+len-1, column);

public void copyCellRange(
Cells sourceCells,
int srcRowIndex, int srcColIndex,
int destRowIndex, int destColIndex,
int rowCount, int colCount)

for (int destRowIndex = row; destRowIndex<(row+len); destRowIndex++){
cells.copyCellRange(cells, row-1, column, destRowIndex, column, 1, 1);


public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, AsposeLicenseException {

License lic = new License();
lic.setLicense(new FileInputStream(“lib/Aspose.Cells.lic”));

System.out.println("Aspose version : " + CellsHelper.getReleaseVersion());

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();


Cells cells = workbook.getWorksheets().getSheet(“AverageIF”).getCells();

// Expand range

int numberOfCellsToInsert = 3;
int splitRow = 16;

int column = 3; // D column
expandColumn(cells, splitRow, column, numberOfCellsToInsert);

column = 4; // E column
expandColumn(cells, splitRow, column, numberOfCellsToInsert);

column = 5; // F column
expandColumn(cells, splitRow, column, numberOfCellsToInsert);

column = 6; // G column
expandColumn(cells, splitRow, column, numberOfCellsToInsert);

column = 7; // H column
expandColumn(cells, splitRow, column, numberOfCellsToInsert);
