Actually I have,but I don't know why I don't get any response from official,which happen on me sometimes.In addition,if I want to get a format string copied from Excel,I find it maybe is a only in-build method,isn't it? – yode – 2017-04-30T11:22:03.667

@yode Ok, wasn't sure if you meant a specific source or only experience. Let us know when they answer. – Kuba – 2017-04-30T14:36:03.463
