Thanks for the screenshots and PDF document.

When you open/view the Excel file into MS Excel, are those double quotes shown for the (formatted) cells? Also, please zip and attach your input Excel file. We will check your issue soon.

Hi Amjad,

Thanks for the reply.

When we open/view the Excel file into MS Excel we see those double quotes. Here is the input and output files.



Thanks for the template file.

Please notice, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned by converting your template file to PDF file format. I found that double quotes " from XLSX file are not shown in converted PDF file. I noticed this issue with cells, E61, E62, E63, L61, L62, S61, S62, etc. on the sheet.
Sample code:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook("f:\\files\\2.xlsx");"f:\\files\\out1.pdf");
