> Hi ,
> 
>   My name is Dragos Buleandra . I'm a Romanian developer and I work for a
> German software company ( www.trade2b.com ).
>   In our currently project, in the past 2-3 month ,  I'm in charge with
> exporting/importing data to/from Excel files .
>   Because we were looking for Java Open source solutions , I searched on
> Internet and I found Jakarta Apache Poi project .
>   I forgot to say that I'm a Java developer , with 4 years experience in this
> beautiful programming language .
>   By working with POI and because the clients needed features unsupported by
> POI , I started to add new features into this library :
> 
>          1) - I fully implemented the entire "Data validation" Excel's
> mechanism - by implementing DV and DVAL records ( documented into
>                 OpenOffice.org Excel's documentation ) . Of course , I created
> a method for easily usage of this mechanism .
>                All features available in Excel regarding this mechanism are
> supported ( Lists ..... , prompt and error boxes and so on ) .
>          2) - Fixed a bug occurred when cloning sheets which contains
> "Autofiltering" 
>          3) - Add 3 methods for easily group/outline rows in a sheet (
> grouping/outlining columns is my current task , but in 2 days will be finished
> ) .
>                By implementing these methods , I fixed a bug into "WSBool"
> record , where fields "field_1_wsbool" and "field_2_wsbool" where
> filled/serialized
>                in the wrong order .
>          4) - I also implemented a way to insert images ( in .bmp format ) .
> This feature use IMDATA and OBJ records . I found this solution into a Perl
> module ,
>                 without having a documentation for this two Excel records ,
> that's why I don't intend to post this patch .
> 
>    I saw on your forum that many people are expecting  Data validation"
> Excel's mechanism , in order to be able to generate Lists in Excel .
>    If no one solved this problem , I'll be glad to do it myself .
>    I'll be very happy if you can give me an answer ! After I'll finish to
> implement the methods required by grouping/outlining columns I want
>   to post all my patches , that's why I need  to know if they aren't already
> implemented .
