Excel Spreadsheet columns hidden on iPad/iOS

We generate spreadsheets using ASPOSE Cells that contain table data filter filter headers. (The use can filter by specific values in the column.)

We notices that when opened on an iOS device, only the first column is ever visible. However, if we move that exact file to a Windows PC, open it and click Save in Microsoft Office, then move it back to the iOS device and open it, then all is fine and all columns are viewable.
We don’t know why opening and saving the file on a WinPC somehow “fixes” the issue.
Any ideas?

Good news. We updated our DLL to version 7.3.4 from 7.0.1 and that fixed the problem. I didn’t realize we were still using 7.0.1.
