This patch naively removes the offending use of .setRoundingMode() and relies on the the default rounding algorithm.

The default rounding mode is alas different to the one used by Excel

I guess the best thing is probably to call this via reflection? That way those on Java 6 can get the same result as excel, and those on java 5 can get something close...

Hi Nick,

This looks like an excellent example for a FAQ. - "Why do my POI results differ from Excel?"
