workbook.Open throws exception - Invalid Formula


I'm trying to open a workbook which opens using Excel 2007 with Aspose.Cells

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
workbook.CalcMode = CalcModeType.Manual;
workbook.ReCalcOnOpen = false;

and I'm gettign the exception below.

How can I prevent this exception? I do not need any calculations, just some values which are not calculated.

Thanks in advance,

Invalid formula:"'VGO + Freight'!$G$37".

Please try the attached version v4.8.2.3. If you still find the issue, kindly post your template excel file here, we will check your issue soon.

Thank you.

We were able to isolate the problem (see attached xlsx).

The cell is referring to a named range which is defined as a single cell reference. This named range contains a sheet name that contains a '+' sign.

For some reason Aspose.Cells is intepreting this + as an addition.


Please try the attached version (latest fix v5.1.1.3), i have tested with your file and it works fine with it.

Thank you.
