Created attachment 26668 [details] CellCommentTest.xlsx Steps: 1. Create Excel file. 2. Add cell comment. 3. Process with POI. Get our created cell comment and try to set to another cell. XSSFCell cell = row.getCell(0); XSSFComment comment = cell.getCellComment(); XSSFCell cellWithoutComment = row.getCell(1); cellWithoutComment.setCellComment(comment); 4. Try to save changes FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(testFilePath); wb.write(out); out.close(); Actual result: NPE appears, file size = 0 bytes Expected: comment moved successfull (in 3.6 it works) See attachments to test

Thanks for the test case, it made it much quicker to investigate I'm rather confused by this one, but it's either a bug in xmlbeans, or we're doing something too odd in our processing of the vml diagram part. However, by adding a .toString() call in after the update, it seems to make xmlbeans re-compute whatever was broken. I'm sure there should be a better solution, but this seems to work fine as a workaround... Test and workaround added in r1072022.
