phonetic guide missing after copy and save


Phonetic string is not visible to us as in the screenshots shared by you. We have tried with MS Excel 2007, 2013 and 2016. Please provide the details of MS Excel on your side and environment details. Also share the steps how this string can be displayed in MS Excel.

i used two excel programs.

  • Excel 2016 KOR ( Excel.exe 16.0.10827.20138)
  • Excel 2013 ENG ( Excel.exe 15.0.4569.1504 )

Maybe Phonetic is hidden in the English version.

Try the following methods

  1. Select all cells
  2. Select Show Phonetic Field as shown in the attached figure ( before_click show_phonetic_field_menu.png )
  3. It will look like the attached figure. ( after_click show_phonetic_field_menu.png )

Thank you for your quick support.


Thanks for providing the steps and supporting images. I am afraid that I am still not able to observe Phonetics text. I tried to retrieve Phonetics information using Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel, however it also detects Phonetic.Visible flag as false and text as null for your sample file. Could you please verify again that have you sent us the correct file or not?

Assuming this is the correct file, I have saved its copy using Excel 2016 and MS Interop both. Please check both the following Excel files and inform if Phonetics information is still available or not. It may help us to narrow down the problem and provide our feedback. (7.3 KB) (7.3 KB)

The samples I uploaded are correct file.
i could see all the Phonetic Strings in the two Excel files ( book1SavedByExcel2016.xlsx, book1SavedByInterop.xlsx ) from Microsoft Excel 2016 KOR

If you can not see the Phonetic String,
How about creating a sample?
Just type in the cell and select it, then click Edit Phonetic to fill in the string.


Thanks for providing the feedback. We cannot create a sample because our Excel versions do not show menu for Phonetics.

Although we were not able to observe the issue but we need to look into it more. We have logged the issue in our database for investigation and for further analysis. Once, we will have some news for you, we will update you in this topic.
