I found that if i set the parsingFormulaOnOpen of load option to false, i could fix this problem. Is this the correct way to solve this problem?


Thanks for your findings.

The option (set the parsingFormulaOnOpen of load option to false) would ask MS Excel to parse the formulas when opening the file into it. You may use this option for the time being if it works for your needs. Moreover, since we reproduced the issue and logged a ticket (“CELLSNET-52858”) for it already, so it will be fixed in the APIs and then you don’t have to use the workaround. Once we figure it out, we will let you know.
