LINQ Reporting engine changes the number to date using NET


My version is 20.7
Currently every small string number is converting into Date time.

My JSON is simple:
{'Min': '2.12', 'Max': '13.32'}

My word document:
Min: <<[Min]>>

Result is
Min: 2/12/2020 12:00:00 AM

I tried “#.##” and “0.00”, both are not working.
Maybe there is a proper way to do it?

Hi Tahir,

Thank you for quick reply.
Looking forward for the issued resolved later.

By the way, do you know what is the proper way to format decimal in Aspose Word?
for example, ‘Min’: ‘2.123’
How to show two decimal places in Word?

I tried “#.##” and “0.00”, both are not working.
Min: <<[Min]:”#.##”>>
Min: <<[Min]:”0.00”>>


oh, I know what was the issue.
in the JSON, if I use the decimal, not string, the “#.##” and “0.00” will work.

‘Min’: ‘2.123’ changes to ‘Min’: 2.123


Yes, your understanding is correct. Please let us know if you face any issue while using Aspose.Words.


It is to inform you that we have closed this issue (WORDSNET-16325) as ‘Not a Bug’.

By default, the engine tries to parse date-time values from as many strings as it can. However, the you can change this behavior by specifying a concrete format to parse date-time values or skip date-time parsing from strings at all. Please check remarks of JsonDataLoadOptions.ExactDateTimeParseFormat property for more information.
