Description Jai Kang 2003-07-25 13:55:32 UTC
Below is a part of my source codes to write formulas (PMT & PPMT) using the
setCellFormula. It works OK for PMT, but it does not with PPMT. When I open
the xls file, the cell has an error: ( #VALUE!) even though the formula bar
shows right formula (=PPMT($C$7/1200,C11,$C$6,$C$5). It is so strange that
the cell becomes OK when I either double click the cell itself, or press
Enter key at the end of the formula in the cell's formula bar.

HSSFRow r10 = sheet.createRow((short)10);
HSSFCell r10c3 = r10.createCell((short)3);

HSSFCell r10c4 = r10.createCell((short)4);
r10c4.setCellFormula("PPMT($C$7/1200, C11, $C$6, $C$5)");

Re-tested OK in 3.1-beta1.

Bug was present until 3.0.2.  It looks like the bug was due to incorrect parameter operand classes.  That was fixed in bug 44675.
