Description James Firth 2007-10-29 04:20:15 UTC
Files with images (possibly and/or charts - TBC) that have been modified by POI
will not open with Excel 2003 after Office Service Pack 3 has been installed. 
Excel running on XP SP2.  Problem applicable for POI running on Linux and POI
running on Win XP.

Can you attach a test case so we can try to reproduce the problem? 
I mean a sample xls file, the code to modify it and the resulting file that
fails in Office SP 3. 

Comment 2 James Firth 2007-10-30 03:05:49 UTC
Apologies everyone.  Just realised when creating sample test cases I was using
alpha release of 3.0.  This bug exists in the alpha but appears fixed in 3.0.1
Comment 3 Ling Chen 2008-03-14 09:20:00 UTC
What's the patch for this fix?

We have a custom version for our system. Integrating just 3.0.1 FINAL would not be a good choice for us.
