ImportCustomObjects to merged area

Hi Team,

I have a problem with using Cells.ImportCustomObjects method. I tried to insert list of objects to an excel template by using ImportCustomObjects. Inserting data working but the excel template has merged areas. e.g: CustomerId [A1:C1], Name: [D1:F1]
When I inserted multiple rows to merged area, data is shifting. For example Customer1->A2, Name -> B2 But i want to insert data to each of merged cells like as Customer1->A2, Name -> D2

How can I do that using library. I dont want to insert data cell by cell by arranging manually by myself.

The working code sample is stated below.

Thanks for your help

   class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Workbook wb = new Workbook(@"D:\myTemplate.xlsx");
            List<Customer> customerList = new List<Customer>();

            //Creating collection for test items
            for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
                Customer customer = new Customer
                    CustomerId = i,
                    Name = "Customer" + i
            //Insert data to excell
            wb.Worksheets[0].Cells.ImportCustomObjects((ICollection)customerList, new String[] { "CustomerId", "Name" }, false,1, 0, customerList.Count, true, "dd/mm/yyyy", false);
            wb.Save(@"D:\outData.xlsx", Aspose.Cells.SaveFormat.Xlsx);

    public class Customer
        public int CustomerId { get; set; }

        public string Name { get; set; }

Did you add extra parameter for merged areas? Or you just change the core method(ImportCustomObjects) to detect merging and shifting etc?
I couldnt understand what did you fixed exactly?
