Hi Babu Benny,

Well, ExportDataTable exports the data based on the displayed cells, so, if a cell is merged (A1:A2 – > A1), its value in the main cell would be considered. ExportDataTable works in the same way as Copy/Paste feature of MS Excel. For confirmation, you may try to copy the range i.e. A1:D2 to paste it into other location in MS Excel or even into other packages like notepad, you will see that it provides the same output as Aspose.Cells does for ExportDataTable method.

For your requirements, you have to do it by yourself, you need to first unmerge the merged cells and then manually copy/input the values (your desired values) into those cells, then, finally export the data to DataTable for your requirements.

Thank you.
