Excel file input

I downloaded the package "POI 3.5 beta 6, and Office Open XML Support

I have a input file "testcase.xls", I tried to open and save as another file
"newfile.xls" by POI. There is some problem when I open the file "newfile.xls"
  1. When I open "newfile.xls" by MS Office 2003, I got the message: "File
error: data may have been lost" before I am able to completely open the file.
But some cells (from F57 to L57) in sheet "Generator" can't show exactly value
like the origin input file "testcase.xls".
  2. I try to open by Open Office 3.0.0, there are many cells not able to show
exactly value like the origin file. For example: cells from F57 to L57 show
value "#NAME?", cells from E49 to L49 show value "#N/A".

Here is my source code:

import org.junit.Test;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook;
import org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.POIFSFileSystem;

public class ReadWriteSpeadsheetTest {

    public void openSpreadsheet() {
        HSSFWorkbook wb = null;
        try {
            String xls = "input/testcase.xls";
            wb = new HSSFWorkbook(
                    new POIFSFileSystem(new FileInputStream(xls)));

            // Save as another file
            FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream(

        } catch (IOException e) {
