Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51703] New: IllegalArgumentException when applying font
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2011 13:02:08 GMT

             Bug #: 51703
           Summary: IllegalArgumentException when applying font
           Product: POI
           Version: 3.8-dev
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: dev@poi.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jan.stette@gmail.com
    Classification: Unclassified

I have seen POI failing to read several spreadsheets, with the following stack

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Start index must be less than
end index.
at sun.reflect.GeneratedConstructorAccessor45.newInstance(Unknown Source)
at sun.reflect.DelegatingConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(Unknown Source)
... 20 more 

Debugging it, it looks like there's a text record which has a font applied,
where the length of the text string is 42 characters (in one of the examples),
but the index for where to apply the font is 60.  The cases I've seen this
being a problem all seem related to a floating graphic containing a formatted
string only, but I don't know if that's definitely the cause of it as I haven't
been able to reproduce this in a simple spreadsheet that I've created myself.

I'm afraid the spreadsheets I have that produce this problem can't be provided
as they contain confidential data.
