Hi, im trying to format a string like 000055555 in a excel sheet. But its is imposible, the excel generated show the string as number like this.


My code is this, 

        sheet.Columns[10].CellStyle.NumberFormat = "@";

Hi Carlos,


We suspect this as a usage issue. You might have used Value or Value2 property instead of Text property. Value or Value2 property converts the data type as per value in the cell. In your scenario, number “00005555” is trying to store as text initially and the number format is applied. So, the value is already converted to number while assigning, and the cell type is changes to Text later. We recommend to use the Text property in order to get the issue resolved. We have attached the code snippet for your reference.


Code Snippet:


sheet["A1"].Text = "000055555";

sheet.Columns[0].CellStyle.NumberFormat = "@";
