Thanks for the template file.

We found the problem, we will figure it out soon.

Thank you.


Please try this fix. We have fixed this bug of saving List box.

In this fix,we use Cell.GetStyle and SetStyle method replace the property of Cell.Style. The two methods will save more memory usage than cell.Style property.

If you want to set style of the cell, please change your codes as :

//Getting the style of the cell.

Style style = cell.GetStyle();

//Setting the property of the style.


//Setting the style of the cell
