Subject Re: AW: setCellValue(Date) is displayed ahead by 1 day and 4 years
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2003 10:28:22 GMT
The 1 day issue is probably combination of a rounding error plus timezone plus
midnight (00:00) time... could be in POI, could be in your code.. needs
investigation....  

The four years issue is the difference between files created on a Mac vs files
created on a PC. While one uses a 1904 date baseline, the other uses 1900 (or
vice versa.... since its near midnight in my timezone, i shall not tax my brain
to remember which is which) ... 

There is low level record (the "1904" record) that tells you which format the
data is stored in the file. I dont know if/how POI handles this at a higher
level... probably getDateValue should account for this.....
