iam adding ComboBox in the Spreadsheet at run time using the below code

control.SPlusSpreadsheetControl.AddComboBoxToCell(2, 3, new[] { string.Empty })

 public void AddComboBoxToCell(int Rowindex, int ColumnIndex, string[] listOfValues)
            IRange range = WorkSheet[Rowindex, ColumnIndex];
            IDataValidation validation = range.DataValidation;
            validation.ListOfValues = listOfValues;
            validation.PromptBoxText = "Data Validation list";
            validation.IsPromptBoxVisible = true;
            validation.ShowPromptBox = true;

After combo got added to spreadsheet if i copy paste anything in the spreadsheet and do Export to excel then iam getting the exported excel with unreadable content error .
