Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50244] Problem reading Excel document
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2010 15:01:04 GMT

Sorry, I have not got permission to publish the problematic file.
We have tried internally to reproduce a similar document but to no avail.

The problem ssems to be that there exist a name record which is too long, so a
continue record had to be added. After this pattern was first created, all
subsequent open/save processes just copied the record. It is not clear about
how the record first entered the system (older office software, erroreous
scripting with insufficient checking or whatever)

It is also not clear if the document is valid at all. Different software reads
the file differently. Some throw errors, some silently ignore the data etc. It
is not possible to actually edit the name directly, so I assume that the data
is not allowed (name value longer than 255 characters)
