Hi all :) 

I use a xls file as template and I need to copy a sheet and filling with data.
Following code:

HSSFSheet familyNameSheet = workBook.cloneSheet(2);

gives following error:

"Error file: data may have been lost"

when I try to open xls file with Microsoft Excel 2003 or higher.

OpenOffice opens file correctly.

I tried to cancel all comments and Excel opens file without pop-up-ing error message: "Error file: data may have been lost".
