How to overcome the issue in formulas while using different region and culture settings in WinForms Spreadsheet (SfSpreadsheet)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: Spreadsheet

Region and culture settings

The FormulaEngine class maintains the parsing and computation of formulas in Spreadsheet. By default, FormulaEngine is implemented for “en-US” region settings. While changing the region settings in the system, there may be a possibility of throwing an exception or error while computing formulas because of System separators (argument, decimal, date…), since they vary for some region.


For Example, ArgumentSeparator for “en-US” and “de-DE” culture as follows,



en-US (United States)

de-DE (German)


   “ , ”

   “ ; ”

In German Region settings, while computing the formulas in SfSpreadsheet, you can change the Separators of FormulaEngine like below code.


FormulaEngine.ParseArgumentSeparator = ';';
FormulaEngine.ParseDecimalSeparator = '.';
FormulaEngine.ParseDateTimeSeparator = '.';
