I have an excel sheet that worked on the previous version but on the 0.40 build just opening and saving the file damages it. Can you tell me where I can send the file so you can have a look at it?

I'm sorry that it happened.

If the file doesn't contain sensitive information then please open a ticket on the Issue Tracker tab and attach the file.

If you want more privacy then email it to "manuel at"

I created the item on the Issue Tracker with the affected file.

The file saves/loads okay on v0.41 but I noticed the Anual and Mês values lost their format. I'll work on it...

Both issues are fully fixed, the file loads and it now retains the formatting that was lost.

Thanks for fixing the file open issue but I still get a different cell format when saving with ClosedXml. It's like all numbers are multiplied by 100. Check the following screenshots at

I don't have that problem on my machine. What locale are you using?
Jan 18, 2011 at 9:09 AM

I use Portugal locale.

Jan 18, 2011 at 4:03 PM

I tried with both Portuguese Portugal and Brazil and the number format is just fine. Are you doing anything with the file before saving it back? Right now all I'm doing is opening and then saving the file you gave me.

Let me know...

I'm also just opening the file and saving it. I tried doing it with English (US) locale and the file opens fine. I dunno why you can't replicate it on your machine. The problem is surely with the number format because we use commas to separate decimals instead of dots.

I'll try again...

I really can't reproduce it. Please attach a file saved with Portuguese settings and another one saved with English settings. This way I can compare your outputs and maybe figure out what's going on.

I created a Virtual Box virtual machine that replicates the problem. I will send you via mail the login details so you can download it. Is that ok?

Jan 20, 2011 at 4:11 PM

Sure thing, I'll be happy to take a look and fix it. Send me the info.

Thanks for the VM, it helped me realize what I was doing wrong and I was able to reproduce the error on my box.

The problem was that when CloseXML opened a file, it picked up the numbers without processing them (in a culture invariant format). Later on when you saved the file it assumed the numbers were in the culture of the machine.

I really wonder why our German friends didn't pick this one up before...

Anyway, it's now fixed on v0.42.1 (it now loads numbers into the culture of the machine)

Thanks again for your help,

Thank you for fixing the number format problem!

Now I found another problem with formulas on the same file. The formula on the sheet Tarifas!G35 should be =(G29*$B$22)/1000 but after opening and saving it is =(G28*$B$22)/1000

Other cells have the same problem but I guess fixing for that one will fix for them all.

I'll get to it...
