INDIRECT formula in excel

I'm using XlsIO to read the content of a cell that is using "INDIRECT" Formula. I've attached the excel file with the formula in the cell B2. The formula is correctly displayed when I open the file using Excel. But when I use the XlsIO lib to open in a WinRT application, the calculatedvalue of the cell is #N/A...

Could you please help me to resolve this problem ?


Here is code sample of my test:

            ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();
            IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;
            StorageFolder local = Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder;
            StorageFile outFile = await local.GetFileAsync("Sample.xlsx");
            IWorkbook workbook = await application.Workbooks.OpenAsync(outFile);
            IWorksheet sheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
            String test = sheet.Range["B2"].CalculatedValue;
