Subject POI RecordFormatException when reading XLS file
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2014 11:42:26 GMT
Hi folks

I have recently received a number of xls files which generate the following exception when
trying to extract text from them:

   org.apache.poi.hssf.record.RecordFormatException: Not enough data (0) to read requested
(2) bytes

My code is based on the HSSF eventusermodel API, I extend POIOLE2TextExtractor.

Can anyone shed any light?  I can provide a sample xls file privately.
