# Using Time Functions in Formula Cells

Hi,

I’m using the following code to calculate time valus in excel:

var styleTime = new Aspose.Cells.Style {Number = 21};
resultSheet.Cells[count, 6].SetStyle(styleTime);
resultSheet.Cells[count, 6].Formula = “=I1+ZEIT(0,0,E3*60)”;

The results cells (column G,H) are all marked as erroneous. When I click on each cell separately, all formulas are evaluated correctly. Recalculating the whole worksheet does not help.

What is here wrong?

Hi,

Well, I have evaluated your issue, here is my code with some comments:

Sample code:

Workbook workbook = new Workbook(“e:\test2\results.xlsx”);
var styleTime = new Aspose.Cells.Style { Number = 21 };
Worksheet resultSheet = workbook.Worksheets[1];
int count = 2;
resultSheet.Cells[count, 6].SetStyle(styleTime);
//It will not work and give #NAME? error as ZEIT is not in Enligsh (US) function
//resultSheet.Cells[count, 6].Formula = “=I1+ZEIT(0,0,E360)";
//It will work
resultSheet.Cells[count, 6].Formula = "=I1+TIME(0,0,E360)”;

workbook.CalculateFormula();

workbook.Save(“e:\test2\outResults3.xlsx”);

While setting formulas please use English names i.e. TIME instead of ZEIT. It works fine.
I have attached my output file, I used your file as input/template file.

See the topic for reference:
