the changed file which crashes Excel

Description Jan Tilo 2003-04-02 14:09:38 UTC
I've added some cell values.

I opened the file in Excel.
1. I want to save the file and Excel show a Pop-Up "file not saved"
2. I change a entry and close Excel. On save Excel crashes with a memory error

I use the latest version of POI.

we also need some source.  The smallest amount of source which causes the
problem.  Leaving open for now.  remove NEED-INFO from the subject once' you've
provided it.  Thanks

Retested OK in 3.1-beta1

Since no code was provided - the test was to read and write out file (id=5604) and open it with Excel.  Excel reported errors opening the files processed by POI 2.0 and 2.5.1. Version 3.0 was the first version that worked.  

2.0
Excel: - lots of errors 'File not found' etc. Debug breaking out in VB code

2.5
Excel: 'Unable to read file', 'Excel found unreadable content ... Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? ... '

The following recent versions were tested and passed:
3.0
3.1-beta1
svn trunk
