--- Comment #8 from Javen O'Neal <onealj@apache.org> ---
Are these external references saved in the xls or xlsx file? If so, then you
are correct that the HSSFWorkbook and XSSFWorkbook need a method to add a link
to an external workbook (I'm assuming it would also be valid to remove a link,
in which case we would need an add, remove and get external links methods).

If only the FormulaEvaluator needs to know about external references (if this
information is not saved in the workbook or is always auto-created when an
external reference is found), then there is no need to complicate the API with
multiple ways to link workbooks for evaluation.

Relevant: https://poi.apache.org/spreadsheet/eval.html#external

FWIW, I tested attachment 34354 and it passes with the current test suite.
