Subject Re: POI XSSF and ClipBoard issue

I am still confused because the attachment you provided is in XSSF
format, how did you produce this out of the Clipboard-Data when you
state that you work with .xls/Biff8/HSSF formatted data?

POI can read XSSF and HSSF just fine and as long as the data is a full
spreadsheet file, it should not matter where it comes from, so you can
try the "XML Spreadsheet" format listed.
