I need to include blank cell in worksheet but it does not work.
This is my code:

ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();

IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;

application.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2013;

IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Create(1);

IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];


worksheet[1, 1].Text = "";

worksheet[1, 2].Text = "";


using (FileStream fileStream = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.CreateNew))


    worksheet.SaveAs(fileStream, ";", Encoding.Default);                                                               




Output expected: ;;

How can I fix?

Hi Mini, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
It is not possible to include blank cells in an empty worksheet of Microsoft Excel (CSV format). You can include blank cells only in between cells with values. This is a behavior of Microsoft Excel, XlsIO does the same. 
However, you can achieve your requirement by using following code  
Code snippet: 
sheet["A1:C1"].Text = "blank cells"; 
sheet["A1:C1"].Text = ""; 
Note: In an empty worksheet, the used range of worksheet will be null in XlsIO. Hence the blank cells are not preserved. By assigning a text to a range, which will be included in used range and its preserve the blank cells.
