Named Range not properly created in 18.8, but worked in 18.3


I probably found a new bug in the latest version.

Code to reproduce:

private static void NamedRangeWorkbookTest()
const string srcFilePath = @"C:\temp\DataTest\AsposeTest\NamedRangeTest.xlsm"; 
const string tgtFilePath = @"C:\temp\DataTest\AsposeTest\NamedRangeTest_Tgt.xlsm";
const string name = "HasFormula"; 
const string value = "=GET.CELL(48, INDIRECT(\"ZS\",FALSE))";
Workbook wbSource = new Workbook(srcFilePath); 
WorksheetCollection wsCol = wbSource.Worksheets;

int nameIndex = wsCol.Names.Add(name); 
Name namedRange = wsCol.Names[nameIndex]; 
namedRange.RefersTo = value;

PS.: Inserting code is not easy.


Thanks for the template files, sample code and screenshots.

I have evaluated your scenario/ case a bit using your template files and sample code. I am afraid, I could not find/reproduce the issue what you have mentioned. Even if I open your output files, i.e., “NamedRangeTest_Tgt.xlsm” and “NamedRangeTest_Correct.xlsm”, both show same formula (i.e.,"=GET.CELL(48, INDIRECT(\"ZS\",FALSE))") for RefersTo field in the dialog in MS Excel. Could you provide details on how we can reproduce the issue on our end. I am using MS Excel (english) version . What is the locale/regional settings you use where the RefersTo formula is changed accordingly? We will check it soon.


I am using the German Excel Version. (de-AT)

The first part of the formula is not translated:

In German it must be: =ZELLE.ZUORDNEN(48;INDIREKT(“ZS”;FALSCH))

Bold text is correct.

In version 18.3 it worked perfectly, writing english formula into name range, and it was correct opening it with Excel (formula got translated completely).

Version 18.8 maybe has a problem with GET.CELL.


Thanks for providing further details.

I have logged a ticket with an id “CELLSNET-46334” for your issue. We will evaluate your issue and try to figure it out soon. The issue is logged as following:
CELLSNET-46334 - Named Range formula ("=GET.CELL") not properly created in German locale
