Subject Re: disable first row in excel (poi v3.12)
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:43:00 GMT
Haven't ever done it myself, but since it is possible in Excel [1]  it is a
matter of working backward from a Workbook set up the way you want, seeing
what properties are set where and doing those things in POI to mimic or
duplicate the setup.  Create an empty workbook set up per those
instructions, save it, then unzip the XLSX file and see how the XML is put
together.  It may be that you would need to reference some properties in
the low-level XML representation not yet exposed in the higher-level APIs.

I don't think anyone has written up how to do this in POI, but if you
figure it out and submit sample code and/or patches we would love to add
another code example to the documentation.
