Subject RE: sheet names and string format read garbled on EBCDIC machine
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 14:12:17 GMT
Please don't forget org.apache.poi.hssf.record.BoundSheetRecord, around
line 143, and org.apache.poi.hssf.record.FormatRecord around line 133.
Changed sources are attached here. Is this the right procedure for
submitting changes? 

If Toshiaki also could send me a test excel file created on a Shift_JIS
machine, I'll put it through my appl on OS/390 (EBCDIC) and en_us
version of Windows...

yes.  This is what I did before everywhere that I found it.  If you find

other places that it should be done, please submit patches/unit

yes/no  we should support i18n.

This is opensource.  We can always patch.  I don't worry about
