Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49874] New: Problems with names when removing a sheet from an HSSF workbook
Date Fri, 03 Sep 2010 06:51:32 GMT

           Summary: Problems with names when removing a sheet from an HSSF
           Product: POI
           Version: 3.7-dev
          Platform: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: dev@poi.apache.org
        ReportedBy: martin.studer@mirai-solutions.com

Zip file with the mentioned workbooks (Test.xls and Test.xlsx)

I have an Excel file with three sheets called AAA, BBB, CCC. On each of them
there is a name defined: AA on AAA, BB on BBB, CC on CCC. If I'm now removing
sheet BBB, the behaviour for a HSSF workbook is different than for a XSSF
workbook. The following is what I observe:

- HSSF: Sheets AAA and CCC remain (which is ok), but left are only names AA and
BB. This is strange. I would understand if BB would be missing but CC should
definitely still be around I guess. Also, if you open the file with an older
version of Excel (< 2007) you are confronted with a dialog saying that the file
has been repaired. Excel 2007+ seems to do that behind the scenes.

- XSSF: Sheets AAA and CCC remain (again, this is ok), and so do the names AA
and CC. This behaviour seems ok to me.

Please find a snippet of code that can be used to reproduce the problem:

Workbook wb = WorkbookFactory.create(new
wb.write(new FileOutputStream("C:/Users/mstuder/Documents/Test2.xls"));

Also, please find attached the two corresponding Excel files (*.xls and
