            Bug ID: 59132
           Summary: Evaluation of COUNTBLANK() doesn't act as same
                    behavior of Excel
           Product: POI
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSSF

COUNTBLANK(), the result of evaluation is that the blank string "" cell is not

[Column A]                       [Column B]
=IF(ISBLANK(B1),"",B1)           Peter
=IF(ISBLANK(B2),"",B2)           Tom
=IF(ISBLANK(B3),"",B3)           Alice
=IF(ISBLANK(B4),"",B4)           Zoe

When I delete "Alice" and use
FormulaEvaluator evaluator =

to evaluate cell A5, the result is 0. But when I use excel to do the same
thing, the result is 1.

I think it is a bug because POI should not act as different behavior than
