Gets or sets the culture information to be used to convert the numeric strings such as currencies and formatted numerals in the imported data to numbers. By default it is set to System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture. This property setting will take effect only if the ConvertStrings property is set to true.



When the ConversionCulture property is set to null (C#) or Nothing (VB.NET), ExcelWriter will throw this exception.


By default, when importing data, ExcelWriter will not convert numeric strings to numbers. If the ConvertStrings property is set to true, ExcelWriter will parse the strings into a decimal type by using the culture information specified through the ConversionCulture property. However if ConvertStrings is set to false, the setting of the ConversionCulture property will not take any effect and the numeric string will not be converted.

If ConvertStrings is enabled but no culture is set for the ConversionCulture property, then ExcelWriter will use the invariant culture, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture, to parse the numeric strings.
