Description Gabriel Claramunt 2008-05-07 12:48:04 UTC
(at least, decimal and date are the ones I've tried)
How to reproduce: create a new excel, select a cell and add a validation
Allow: decimal
Data: between

Opening the XLS file with POI fails with an exception.

This is the stack trace

Retested OK in 3.1-beta1
Problem easily reproduced in 3.0.2

I'm pretty sure this problem has little to do with Decimal and Date validation types, and more to do with the presence of the 'Maximum' value.

The fix was for bug 44710 was svn r643654.
