Description bryan.allison 2010-01-11 11:20:28 UTC
When generating a Excel file with the 3.6 version, there a limit of 255 character by cell, a problem that did not exist in version 3.2-Final that I currently use.

The limit in hssf is 32,767 characters.

Take a look at org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.TestHSSFCell#testMaxTextLength() which is a (passing) unit test which shows that cells with text that long can be stored just fine, and text longer than that can't.
