Subject POI XSSF and ClipBoard issue
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2015 08:18:12 GMT
Hi guys,

I initially opened this bug (
https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58510) but apparently the
user list suits better.

What I want is to be able to read the content of the system clipboard
(after someone copied something from Excel). I was doing that with POI
(HSSF). I was finding the "Biff8" format inside the clipboard (among
others) and giving it to POI and everything was fine.

Apparently the Biff8 format is for Excel 97-2007. So my question is, is it
still possible to use POI for reading clipboard out of newer version of
Excel? Has anyone attempted that?

I know you people are used to open files directly with POI so my needs are
a bit different. Here is a list Formats available when copying (XML
Spreadsheet, text/rtf, cf5, cf4,cf129, Biff5 , Biff12, text/plain,
Link,text/html, Biff8, Object Descriptor, Csv, Link Source Descriptor).

Thank you,
