Description Vlad 2020-09-25 16:50:45 UTC
I have a formula in the cell, for example:
=10 + 1

But when I set a new cell value like:


POI doesn't remove the formula from the cell and cell type is still CellType.FORMULA. When I open the file in the Excel, cell value hasn't been changed.

Previosly I used Cell#setCellType(CellType) before updating cell value and it was working. But now, Cell#setCellType(CellType) is deprecated and I don't get the desired result by just using Cell#setCellValue(...).

Is it a bug? If so, could you fix it?

This is likely the same as bug #63845, please try with a recent nightly build and reopen this bug with more information if the problem still happens with that version.
