According to the documentation, the DimensionsRecord *is* mandatory.  POI has
more than 200 test files that seem to obey this rule. So it's probably not a
good idea to relax that constraint in POI without understanding the problem
better.

Does re-saving the file in Excel make the problem go away? If not, perhaps you
are able to whittle the file down to something that still produces the problem
but does not contain any sensitive data.  If you can upload a sample file that
reproduces the problem this will help a lot.

Alternatively, you could try running BiffView and filtering the output (e.g.
with grep) for "Offset=0x".  That should produce output like the following:

Offset=0x00000000(0) recno=1 sid=0x0809 size=0x0010(16)
Offset=0x00000014(20) recno=2 sid=0x00E1 size=0x0002(2)
Offset=0x0000001A(26) recno=3 sid=0x00C1 size=0x0002(2)
Offset=0x00000020(32) recno=4 sid=0x00E2 size=0x0000(0)
Offset=0x00000024(36) recno=5 sid=0x005C size=0x0070(112)

...which should be quite safe to upload, but still help a little bit in
diagnosing this bug.  Perhaps you could also upload similar filtered BiffView
results from the file as re-saved by Excel.
