Nick Burch commented on TIKA-360:
---------------------------------

Fractions will be supported when we upgrade to POI 3.8 beta 6 / 3.8 Final

Are there any other areas we still need to enhance?

> As highlighted in TIKA-103, there are issues with Tikas parsing of Excel files due to
the way Excel stores dates as numbers as well as the formatting applied by POI for these numbers.
To provide base support for number/date formatting an initial patch was applied as part of
TIKA-103 to apply POI's out-of-the-box formatting.
> This issue is being raised to capture the progress of addressing outstanding formatting
issues such as Fractions within the POI library.
