Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2118:

You may want to check with the POI users list.  Would the desired outcome be an 
EncryptedFileException or similar?

If the file weren't encrypted, would the current behavior be ok?  The parser 
basically doesn't know what to do with cp3197...and I think that's reasonable.

>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: parser
>    Affects Versions: 1.13
>         Environment: Windows 7 x64, JVM 1.8.0_101
>            Reporter: Seva Alekseyev
> When parsing the following password protected Excel file:
> https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/92341073/Copy%20of%20I-LHD%203E.xls
> Tika emits an IllegalArgumentException with a message "Unsupported codepage 
> requested". The inability to parse has nothing to do with codepage, that 
> error is misleading.
