I am having problems opening jxlrwtest.xls in open office. Open office reports a basic IO Error. Furthur to that, the two examples appear to not work on my system. I am on windows, using the latest xampp distrubution.
Confirmed. test with a valid .xls file and example files should work as expected.
Yes, the xls in the latest release is invalid.
Although the xls file is corrupt. Simply download a previous release and use it's xls file and it will work just fine.
