Hello, I am developing an application for exporting/importing data from/into a database by means of MS Excel files. To do that I convert an Excel file into an XML (I wrote a generator wich gives me 'gmr:' like file), then I use XSLT + another tool (like XML_DBMS, or Oracle XSU) to load data into the database. To import data into Excel I generate XML from a SQL query and then serialize the result by means of POI. At this point I use Oracle XSQL to produce XML and I wrote a serializer for it (it is just a wrapper class for HSSFSerializer). But I needed support for cell formating (font, colors),so I rewrote some classes in "net.sourceforge.poi.xml.hssf" package to handle some new attributes of 'gmr:Cell' element. I did that because we needed something and it was very urgent. But now we see that we'll need support for creating Excel files containing formulas. As I see you have done a lot and it's almost ready. I can even use existing classes and start create my own implementation... So could you tell me in what state the framework for formulas is? Does it take some days, weeks, years to make it available?
Thanks in advance, Iouri.
