Formular not evaluated on certain XLSM when converting to PDF in .NET

When converting the attached XLSM file to PDF, two formulas are not evaluated:
image.png (39.7 KB)

Formula not (61.2 KB)

I tried to convert the same document with GroupDocs Viewer and there everything works fine.
I tested with version 22.9 (and additionally 22.10 for Conversion)
No special conversion options are needed to reproduce the issue.

You have to update to v23.9 or v23.10 (which will be released by the end of October 2023).
Also, you need to set a CultureInfo either application-wide or only for the executing conversion (see the snippets).
The reason is that the currency symbol “RM” is available only for locale “ms-MY”. If the region is not ms-MY, even in Microsoft Excel, when you re-calculate the cell it also gives “#VALUE!”.

Application-wide culture set during application initialization:

CultureInfo.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("ms-MY");

Executing conversion only

const string source = "Formula not evaluated.xlsm";

using (var converter = new Converter(source, () => new SpreadsheetLoadOptions
           CultureInfo = new CultureInfo("ms-MY")
    var options = new PdfConvertOptions();
    converter.Convert("converted.pdf", options);
