Problems with combination of Autofilter and numeric digits in name of sheet


we are using Aspose Cells for Java (Version 17.6) and it seems that there is sometimes a problem when Autofilter is used in worksheets with numeric digits in its name.
After opening saved file Excel wants to repair the file. Rough Message in Excel: “some entries has been removed from ‘definedNames’ in '/xl/workbook.xml-Part '”

Excelfile must be repaired if worksheet is named ‘rC2_SUPDo’
Excelfile must not be repaired if worksheet is named ‘C2Test’

I have added a file to reproduce the problem.
TestAutoFilter.zip (7.1 KB)

Thanks a lot.

Best regards
