Hi, I am opening a excel file (which is in a AIX machine) from a Windows 2000 Machine through Apache POI and inserting some values. The macros in that excel sheet are not executing. If the excel file is also in Windows 2000 then it is working fine. Thanks, Dinesh

Given that it is unlikely that many poi developers have access to aix machines, least you can do is to give us more details. For example, sample files exhibiting the problem. Simplest code exhibiting the problems.Which version of poi are you using? How are you reading the files from the AIX machine using poi? FTP? NFS? SMB? Where are you saving the resulting file? On top of the old one, or as a new file? on the windows or AIX box? From where do you open the file in Excel? windows or aix? What do you mean by macros not executing.. are the macros present in the resulting file? are they scrambled? is there an error message? are they on_start macros? Have you tested that the files are binary equivalent when copied from aix to windows or vice versa? No one here is a mind reader, you know!

Hi, Actually we found that the problem is with our system here. The macros are working fine now. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks, Dinesh
