This might be due to your inserted (underlying) DateTime value into those cells. Please note, setting custom formatting (e.g. DD-MMM or DD/MMM or DD.MMM) would be only for display, so your original DateTime value behind the scene would be always shown in the formula bar.

If you still think it is an issue with Aspose.Cells APIs, kindly do share your template Excel file and output Excel file, we will check it soon.

PS. please zip the files prior attaching.
