Getting Cell Value as #VALUE

Hi Team,

At cell level we have a formula something like.


and P18 cell has a value = +18

when we are doing the workbook.calculateFormula(true);

After calculating the formula we are saving the workbook and while reading the output sheet we are getting the #Value for cell xx where the above formula is set.

Can you please help us out to resolve this issue.




Thanks for your posting and using Aspose.Cells.

Please download and use the latest version: Aspose.Cells for Java (Latest Version) it works fine.

We have tested this issue with the following code and it generated the pdf with correct A1 value i.e 1.8.

I have attached the source xlsx file used in this code and output pdf generated by it for your reference.

If your issue still occurs with the latest version, then please provide us your sample xls/xlsx file replicating this issue. We will look into it and help you asap.


String filePath = “F:\Shak-Data-RW\Downloads\source.xlsx”;

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(filePath);


workbook.save(filePath + “.outj.pdf”);
