Problem with date and time format in an Excel document (german region and language) saved as HTML

Hi, I have an Excel document (region and language is german) with some dates and times. When I save this document as HTML using Aspose.Cells the date and time formats are switched to the english ones. I'm using Aspose.Cells I have attached the Excel document and the corresponding HTML output. Is ther any way that the date and time formats will not be changed when saving the document?

After further investigation, the number format of “B7” is [$-F400]h:mm:ss AM/PM. The displayed number format in MS is h:mm:ss. The number format of “D3” is [$-F800]TTTT, MMMM TT, JJJJ. The display number format in MS is TTTT,TT. MMMM JJJJ. We ignored the header “[$-Fxxx]” of the number in converting date time to a string value. By the way, we will fix the two issue soon. But we do not know whether there are some other special formats that start with “[$-Fxxx]”. So, could you simply set the number format as actual displayed number format: h:mm:ss, TTTT,TT. MMMM JJJJ?

Thank you.

While trying to keep the API as straightforward and clear as possible, we have decided to recognize and honor the common development practices of the platform; we have re-arranged API Structure/ Namespaces.

With this release, we have reorganized the API classes for Aspose.Cells component. This change has some major aspects that we follow. We have added new namespaces. The entire API (classes, interfaces, enumerations, structures etc.) were previously located in the Aspose.Cells namespace. Now, certain sets of API have been moved to their relative namespaces, which make the relationship of classes (with their members) and namespaces clear and simplified. It is to be noted here, we have not renamed existing API (classes, enumerations etc.) but, I am afraid you still need to make certain adjustments in your existing projects accordingly.

For complete reference, please see the product's API Reference.
