Problem to export numbers to word doc. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    when i export numbers into word doc, it reverse those numbers and save to word! for example if i have this string "I have 1/5 number", it export "I have 5/1 number".

    also i reverse my string from "1/5" to "5/1" but still it export "5/1"!

    Note : i'm working on rtl languages (persian or arabic).

    thanks in advance

                sb.AppendLine("30گرم نان + 1/5 تخم مرغ آب پز یا 1 تخم مرغ نیمرو");
                string text = this.CorrectInvalidNumbers(sb.ToString());
                WriteInfoToWordDoc(this._wordFile, sb.ToString());
