DateTime formats for Excel to PDF conversion with Aspose.Cells for .NET API in C#


If we manipulate DateTimeFormat for CurrentCulture in our code, and then try to convert an xlsx file having a DateTimeFormat-ted cell with a value, we get an unexpected result.

Sample code could be:

CultureInfo.CurrentCulture =
new CultureInfo(“en-GB”)
DateTimeFormat =
new DateTimeFormatInfo
ShortDatePattern = “d MMMM yyyy”,

		var cellDoc = new Aspose.Cells.Workbook("d://Book2.xlsx");
		cellDoc.Save("d://CellsResult.pdf", Aspose.Cells.SaveFormat.Pdf);

The source xlsx is Book2.zip (6.4 KB)

The result looks like:

11/14 November 2019/2019

Thanks for the sample code segment and template file.

After an initial test, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned by using the following sample code with your template file. I found the DateTime formatting in the output PDF page is wrong or corrupted.
Sample code:

 var cellDoc = new Aspose.Cells.Workbook("e:\\test2\\Book2.xlsx");
            cellDoc.Settings.CultureInfo = new CultureInfo("en-GB")
                DateTimeFormat = new DateTimeFormatInfo
                    ShortDatePattern = "d MMMM yyyy" 

        cellDoc.Save("e:\\test2\\out1.pdf", Aspose.Cells.SaveFormat.Pdf);
