    Unhappy Importing Excel time of day issue

    When attempting to import a sheet from an Excel workbook, that contains cell validation with drop-down lists, sheets saved before noon work fine, but sheets saved after noon fail with 'Unrecognized token'. Touching the file with a new, morning timestamp before running the transformation does not correct the problem, however loading the file into Excel and saving it out again before noon (with no other changes) will correct the error. I have spent some time in the source code of JExcelApi, but replacing the jar in the PDI libext directory does not cause my version to be used either.

    Any insights greatly appreciated!

    The jar file in the libext is however the one used by PDI, so if you changed that one and you're changes are not visible it's because of something else... other jar file in the path, you made a change an a path not being executed...

    And do raise a JIRA for this.
