Incorrect MIN formula result in long calculations


We have an Excel workbook with lots of formulas and it seems Aspose.Cells v22.2.0 is not calculating one of the values correctly when compared with Microsoft Excel.

TestCase05_MIN.zip (144.2 KB)

Our test Excel workbook is attached above. I used the following C# code:

var workbook = new Workbook(@"C:\Temp\TestCase05_MIN.xlsx");

// Change cell S1!F16 from current value "No" into "Base Scenario".
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets["S1"];
worksheet.Cells["F16"].PutValue("Base Scenario");

// Examine result in the Calc worksheet.
worksheet = workbook.Worksheets["Calc"];
string s1 = worksheet.Cells["N334"].ToString();
string s2 = worksheet.Cells["N335"].ToString();
string s3 = worksheet.Cells["N325"].ToString();
string s4 = worksheet.Cells["N326"].ToString();

When I run this code I find the result of s1 to s4 as:

s1 = "Aspose.Cells.Cell [ N334; ValueType : IsNumeric; Value : 0; Formula=MIN(N335,N326-N325) ]"
s2 = "Aspose.Cells.Cell [ N335; ValueType : IsNumeric; Value : 1548976.262; Formula=SUMIFS(....omitted..."
s3 = "Aspose.Cells.Cell [ N325; ValueType : IsNumeric; Value : 0; Formula=IF(VLOOKUP(... omitted..."
s4 = "Aspose.Cells.Cell [ N326; ValueType : IsNumeric; Value : 1565348.512; Formula=-MIN(N318,0) ]"

As you can see, cell N334’s formula is MIN(N335,N326-N325), where:

  • N335 = 1548976.262
  • N326 - N325 = 1565348.512 - 0 = 1565348.512

Aspose reports N334’s cell value as 0, which is incorrect according to the formula. When I apply the same change as the code in Microsoft Excel, it reports the Calc!N334 cell value as 1548976.3.

Can you please have a look into it?

Many thanks.
