Excel file to reproduce issue

Attached is an xls file that was produced via Crystal Reports. Opening the file and trying to add a sheet leads to the following exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: CountryRecord not found
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.model.LinkTable.<init>(LinkTable.java:265)
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.model.InternalWorkbook.getOrCreateLinkTable(InternalWorkbook.java:1794)
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.model.InternalWorkbook.checkSheets(InternalWorkbook.java:741)
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.model.InternalWorkbook.setSheetName(InternalWorkbook.java:585)
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook.createSheet(HSSFWorkbook.java:789)
	at org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook.createSheet(HSSFWorkbook.java:73)

The code to reproduce this is:

Workbook wb = WorkbookFactory.create(new File("ReportB.xls"));

Opening the file in Excel and saving it again produces a file that can be read and modified without any problems. I guess Excel simply assumes a default CountryRecord in this case. If this is the case, it would probably make sense to assume a default CountryRecord as well rather than throwing an exception.
