Problem with tab space export

Asked On January 10, 2013 01:06 PM UTC


I exported some text with tab character (e.g. \tSampleText) to Excel (.xlsx). Why after opening the file in Excel 2007 the cell shows a question mark icon instead of tab space (s. screenshot in attachment)?

I have template Excel (ExcelTemplateResource) file in Assembly (e.g. test1.xls). I read this file from assembly and fill with Marker.AddVariable method.
I set InputVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel97to2003.
I save this input version into OutputVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2007.

string resourceLocation = this.GetType().Namespace + "." + ExcelTemplateResource;
Stream stream = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(resourceLocation);
IWorkbook workbook = excelEngine.Excel.Workbooks.Open(stream);
workbook.Version = OutputVersion;
Marker = workbook.CreateTemplateMarkersProcessor();
this.CreateMarkers(); // private method which use the method Marker.AddVariable()

I use Syncfusion.XlsIO.Base.dll v.
