Hi there,

Can someone list down the excel2000 features which are not supported by POI 
version 2.5. 
I have a excel sheet which is rich in functionality and is using lot of excel 
2000 features mainly VBA code, form controls(buttons, check boxes,drop downs), 
VB controls, merged cells, hidden cells, named cells ,protected 
cells,autoshapes, wordart,cell orientation, worksheet protection, workbook 
protection etc...etc...
and when i use this poi apis to read this excel and write that back .POI 
corrupts my file.

So list of unsupported and supported features will really help me in 
understanding what is going wrong.

this is not the place for that request.

hssf is intended to support the excel 97 standard.

all the items you mention vba/form controls and the like sound like they are '97
features as well.  even though hssf doesn't support any 2000 specific features,
the files written should still not be corrupted.
