Difference in values between an excel file and the converted pdf (via aspose) file

Displaying values of an Excel file in Aspose converted pdf with "Show Formula " enabled in the excel file-

  1. In excel, where the a cell value is generated through a formula (e.g- SUM) and then copy-pasted that value to another cell.

  2. Now, if that excel file (with Show Formula option enabled ) is converted, it tends to add few more digits at the end of the decimal numbers.

The customers expect to show the digits as shown in the original excel file but the copy-pasted data seems to add few more digits at the end of it.

The same issue is not observed on a manually entered value or any other value which was copy-pasted but was not generated through a formula.

PFA a screenshot of the original excel and the converted PDF for reference.
