I try open a spreadsheet with POI 3.2-final. This is error message:

Fixed in svn r713852.

More tweaks to EmbeddedObjectRefSubRecord (also changed recently in bug 45912).  This record has an unusual encoding for one of its string fields: the unicode options byte is omitted when the string length is zero.  Prior to this fix, the code was not consistent about this.

Junit added.
Comment 3 Duc Nguyen 2008-11-14 08:21:39 UTC
After I get patch for EmbeddedObjectRefSubRecord.java in svn r713852, then compile POI. But this issue still appears.
Comment 4 Duc Nguyen 2008-11-15 23:56:11 UTC
Patch version of EmbeddedObjectRefSubRecord in r713852 imported some classes.
import org.apache.poi.util.LittleEndianInput;
import org.apache.poi.util.LittleEndianInputStream;
import org.apache.poi.util.LittleEndianOutput;

But they're not in source code of POI 3.2-final.
Where do I get them ?
Comment 5 Josh Micich 2008-11-17 08:57:15 UTC
These files were added back in r707450.  I guess that was after POI-3.2-FINAL

From what I can see these files are present OK in svn trunk.  For example:

Please re-open if you are still having trouble.
