Subject Re: HSSF breaks text in cells - known problem?

Which version of POI are you using?

If you havent done so yet, could you:

1. Try building from the latest source and see 
what results you get?

2. If that doesnt work, please attach the excel 
to a bug report (if its a big file, you could 
upload the smallest file that exhibits the bug)
