I used the XLS Reader to read a couple of XLSX files. Everything works fine except the following topic. If a value in an Excel cell is created by a formula, then an error (or missing value) occurs in this cell.
The XLS Reader should be able to evaluate formulas. But not all of what is available in XL is supported by the Apache POI library (which is the library used by the XLS Reader). And of course if you installed any additional libraries in XL or use macros, that will not be handled by the XLS Reader.
Because there is a new XLS Reader in Verion 2.9 I want to come back to the above mentioned problem with the cells in Excel that causes problems because there is a underlying formula based on an additional library.
It it possible to ignore the formula behind a value and only take the value as it is?
