    Did you format your entire column with your desired date format.


    Range rng = (Excel.Range)worksheetobject.Cells[1,1];
    rng.EntireColumn.NumberFormat = "dd-MMM-yyyy";

    Hope this helps you,....

    You can do it like :

    int r = worksheet.UsedRange.Count;
    worksheet.Cells["A1:A" + r].NumberFormat = "MM/DD/YYYY"; // the column that u want to format.

    you can try this Date format for your machine format

    string sysFormat = CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern;

    string sysUIFormat = CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern;

    I just tried this free .net excel library and use the following code to set the number format to dd-MMM-yyyy format, it works fine:

    Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
    Worksheet sheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
    sheet.Range["A2:B5"].NumberFormat = "dd/MMM/yyyy";
