The DisplayText property returns the cell's formatted value.

// Add a formula to the cell "A1".
worksheet.Cells["A1"].Formula = "= Now()";
// Format the cell's value.
worksheet.Cells["A1"].NumberFormat = "m/d/yy h:mm";
// Obtain the cell's display text.
// The property returns the current date and time
// (for instance, "6/19/2020 13:13").
string displayText1 = worksheet.Cells["A1"].DisplayText;

// Add a number to the cell "B1".
worksheet.Cells["B1"].Value = 1.6;
// Format the number as a percentage.
worksheet.Cells["B1"].NumberFormat = "0.0%";
// Obtain the cell's display text.
// The property returns "160.0%".
