LoadOptions.setParsingFormulaOnOpen side-effects

Hi,

Using Aspose Cells for Java, version 19.9.

Using LoadOptions.setParsingFormulaOnOpen seems to have an undesirable side-effect, resulting in inconsistent formula representations.

Sample code:

LoadOptions loadOptions = new LoadOptions();
loadOptions.setParsingFormulaOnOpen(false);
Workbook workbook = new Workbook("input.xlsx", loadOptions);
WorksheetCollection worksheets = workbook.getWorksheets();
Worksheet worksheet = worksheets.get(0);
Cells cells = worksheet.getCells();
System.out.println("cells.get(0, 1).getFormula(): " + cells.get(0, 1).getFormula());
System.out.println("cells.get(1, 1).getFormula(): " + cells.get(1, 1).getFormula());

If ParsingFormulaOnOpen is set to true, the output will be:

cells.get(0, 1).getFormula(): =OR(A1:A5="a")
cells.get(1, 1).getFormula(): =SUM(A1:A5)

If ParsingFormulaOnOpen is set to false, the output will be:

cells.get(0, 1).getFormula(): =OR(A1:A5="a")
cells.get(1, 1).getFormula(): SUM(A1:A5)

Note that the leading = character for the formula in A2 is missing if ParsingFormulaOnOpen is set to false.

This is trivial to work around, but seems needlessly inconsistent.
The issue also affects other Aspose Cells features, for instance the export to HTML.

Kind regards,
Taras
