insertRows issue


I have founded one issue, when insertRows works incorrectly. I have prepared independent test for you, but it works correctly.

1) i have a several rows with a function, that links to cell in row above.
2) i have inserted a several rows after first row
3) i assume, that all functions will affect inserting and move cell’s link, but in my case it fails.

public void insertRowsTest() throws Exception {
Workbook workbook = new Workbook(“D://in.xlsx”);
Cells cells = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0).getCells();


cells.insertRows(2, 4, true);

System.out.println(cells.get(“B7”).getFormula()); //Not affected because row 8 is above on inserted range
System.out.println(cells.get(“B8”).getFormula()); //Affected“D://out.xlsx”);

assertEquals("=IF(C8<=$C$1,DATE(YEAR($B$1),C7+1,1),"")", cells.get(“B8”).getFormula());


workbook = new Workbook(“D://in1.xls”);
cells = workbook.getWorksheets().get(1).getCells();


cells.insertRows(8, 4, true);

System.out.println(cells.get(“B13”).getFormula()); //Not affected because row 8 is above on inserted range
System.out.println(cells.get(“B14”).getFormula()); //Not affected“D://out1.xls”);

assertEquals("=IF(C14<=$C$1,DATE(YEAR($B$1),C13+1,1),"")", cells.get(“B14”).getFormula());

As you can see in out.xlsx all is fine. All formulas was affected.

But in in.xls (probably format is important) Formulas for second sheet (“Скважины”), column B (starts with row 14) are not affected inserting rows.

Best regards. Alexey

Also you can see, that part of formula was affected by inserting (C10<=$C$1) ->(C14<=$C$1), but another part of formula does not.

The formula in cell B14 in output xls file is


but the correct formula should be
