Description vikas 2003-10-29 06:07:58 UTC
I am trying to read value generated by formula from a cell in excel file like 
"=2+2". the excel file shows 4.

But the code 


returns 0.0 instead of 4.0

I am using latest 3.0-dev POI classes.

use 2.0pre3. What do you mean by 3.0? are u using CVS HEAD directly, dont do
that.. thats unstable. if using CVS, use REL_2_BRANCH. This functionality is
well tested , and does work. If you still cant get it to work with 2.0pre3 ,
reopen this bug with example worksheet that replicates the problem.
