Description Elvira Gurevich 2003-03-07 21:10:26 UTC
processing excel files on OS390 Open Edition 2.10
We created the files on windows and ftp'ed them (binary) to the os390.
Then used java code to read it.

POI code is: jakarta-poi-1.11.0-dev-20030303.jar

It seems that for an excel file created by an excel2000, only the sheet names 
are read incorrectly, whereas for older excel files, the format is misread also.

excel files and biffviewer output attached.
