Subject Re: Formula Calculation Option with POI.

Well, the xls format is binary and much harder to dig around in. If you
wanted to work on that, it is best to start of by looking at the
specification for the file format which Microsoft have published and asking
lots of questions at the dev list. Also, you would have to be certain that
the feature existed in the version of the format that POI targets. I think
it was the version current when Excel 97 or maybe even 95 was released and
it has remained that way to ensure maximum backward compatibility with older
versions of the application.
