Subject RE: VOTE: DBCell and Index Record patches on 2.0 branch
Date Tue, 23 Sep 2003 05:05:58 GMT
The Index Records were being written (and probably still are on 2.0 branch)
but point to invalid DBCells record (which were NOT being written). That was
the case when a template was used anyway.

FWIW I agree. DBCELL & INDEX should are optional--Excel should get along
OK without them. If you write a malformed INDEX record (e.g. pointing to
missing DBCELLs) it will of course cause problems, which is what sounds
like was happening.
