Description joachim.rudolph 2009-09-07 11:38:38 UTC
in org.apache.poi.ss.usermodel.DateUtil.daysInPriorYears() you can find the code 

if ((!use1904windowing && yr < 1900) || (use1904windowing && yr < 1900)) {

throw new IllegalArgumentException("'year' must be 1900 or greater");


This does not make sense for me, i assume the secong 1900 should be 1904 or otherwise the evaluation of use1904windowing makes no sense.

I tried to fix this with r1680642.
