Timeline is broken after saving file

Dear support team,

I’m having an issue with timelines. When opening and saving the file directly without any modifications, the timelime is missing and Excel prompt to repair the file. See attached files.

public class cellsTest {

private static final String dataDir = Paths.get("").toAbsolutePath().toString() + "\\build\\resources\\main\\";

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

    // Open an existing document
    Workbook workbook = new Workbook(dataDir + "book1.xlsx");

    // Save document
    workbook.save(dataDir + "book1_out.xlsx");
