shivax, the convention in this mailing list is to post under the previous replies, trimming unnecessary next.
Now, for reasons I cannot explain, I just ran a simple test again on the same machine (in v5.1.0) and the NA test is producing blank cells.
I was about to create a bug report with an easily reproducible test, but I'm having difficulty recreating the problem now. I don't understand the particular COM interface, etc., how java and/or MS Office do/don't come into play on a windows machine, and how that does or doesn't change the problem. maybe someone else has some clues.
