Hi Nick, 

Thanks for looking into it.  Yep, awhile back I tried what you suggested
(skipping record with warning) ... the ripple was that one of the record(s)
skipped contained array info. re: worksheet names/indexes, so things were a bit
snafu-ed when trying to index formulas on other worksheets as POI had the
completely array size.

The spreadsheet in question comes from a client who has used many differing
versions of Excel to open/add/save info (i.e. the spreadsheet gets circulated
to different depts. who annotate it).  I think extra 'junk' gets saved and
transmitted on when this happens - in particular, the dubious record.

My solution has been to open the spreadsheet and save it in OpenOffice.  That
seems to work, touch wood.

Will investigate technically again when I have more time.
