Subject Re: Table Formula Manipulation and Matrix Function Implementation in HSSF/XSSF
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2017 22:26:47 GMT
LLNL currently uses POI for reading and writing workbooks and would like to extend that functionality
so that their engineers could use the matrix operations for configuration purposes.

They also want me to learn and relay my experiences in helping an open source project.
