           Summary: HSSFDataFormat builtin values are wrong
           Product: POI
           Version: 2.5
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: poi-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dchristianson@farecast.com


I have been playing with code that can format Excel numeric data using Excel
number format strings. My implementation is by no means complete (if something
exists already...), but during the course of vetting it I find that some of the
formats built into the HSSFDataFormat are wrong, specifically:

5, "($#,##0_);($#,##0)"
6, "($#,##0_);[Red]($#,##0)"
7, "($#,##0.00);($#,##0.00)"
8, "($#,##0.00_);[Red]($#,##0.00)"
0x25, "(#,##0_);(#,##0)"
0x26, "(#,##0_);[Red](#,##0)"
0x27, "(#,##0.00_);(#,##0.00)"
0x28, "(#,##0.00_);[Red](#,##0.00)"

According to the docs I can find (OpenOffice.org and playing with my copy of
Excel:mac), it looks like all of these should start with _, not "(". Otherwise,
the "(" is very definitely going to be printed (if you cut and paste the above
formats into Excel you will see this happening).
