Formula error when sheet name with bracket is used

Hi,

I am currently evaluating Aspose Cells, and I am more than astonished about the incredible performance: our previous (also commercial) excel library took about 20 minutes for creating a large excel sheet full of formulas. You manage it in a handful of seconds.

But it seems I found a bug: we have a sheet which has a “(” in it’s name and reference it in a formula (the sheet names are the first 31 chars of user specific data - any “strange” name might happen :wink: )

This is the formula (bold are the sheet names)
=‘784 - Kongresse und Events’!D5+‘774-779 - Vermietung Konzerte (’!D5

And this is the exception:
Aspose.Cells.CellsException occurred
Message=Error in Cell: D5-Invalid formula:"=‘784 - Kongresse und Events’!D5+‘774-779 - Vermietung Konzerte (’!D5".
Source=Aspose.Cells
StackTrace:
at ؐ.՜.੕(Cell ؗ, String ੗, Byte ੘, Boolean ਖ਼)
at Aspose.Cells.Cell.set_Formula(String value)

As it works when pasting the formula to excel, I assume it is a bug.

Take this as a test for your support - a quick response might increase our willingness to buy ;-).

Best regards

Hi,

Thanks for your posting and interest in Aspose.Cells.

You have provided us the formula, but it will be better if you create a sample input file (xls/xlsx) with this formula using Ms-Excel manually and then post here.

Also, it will be helpful if you provide a sample code too. I assume you get this exception while creating workbook object.

Attached is a sample. Start it, click the button and see the exception raise ;-).

Sorry, normally it is not my style to report bugs without a sample, but I was in a hurry.
