>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2766
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: core
>            Reporter: JTB Development
>            Priority: Minor
>
> By default, tika extracts excel values as formatted in the sheet.  It's a fine default.
>  
> However, many times, I am asked to extract raw values as the nicely formatted sheet for
human eyes is losing precision.
>  
> In local instances, I've cloned the tika classes in order to do so, but it's messy due
to how the code is layered (i wind up extending/copying 3-4 classes because chain of class
construction). 
> I believe by adding a config option to the open office config class I can implement same
option much more cleanly. 
>  
> I plan to issue a pull request in few weeks (doing this contribute on the side based
on professional use)
