Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48703] New: sum spanning multiple worksheets
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2010 19:05:37 GMT

           Summary: sum spanning multiple worksheets
           Product: POI
           Version: 3.5-FINAL
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: dev@poi.apache.org
        ReportedBy: thomas.lane.ctr@offutt.af.mil

I've discovered a problem with formulas spanning multiple sheets, specifically,
the sum operation.

I've got a workbook I need to build that contains 35 sheets.  I need to have a
sum operation that spans all the sheets.  I tried to use SUM(sheet1:sheet35!A1)
syntax, but setCellFormula throws an error with this syntax.  I have confirmed
that his syntax is valid for Excel, because I can enter it in manually

I am successfully able to use the SUM(sheet1!A1,sheet2!a1,...) syntax, but this
will not work for my problem, because SUM allows a maximum of 30 arguments.  I
could compute two sums, and then sum the results as a workaround, but for the
number of items I need to calculate, this can get really messy.

Is this syntax [SUM(sheet1:sheet35!A1)] going to be supported in a future
build, or is there a workaround to avoid the error being thrown?
