RE: opening an .ss file

Hi Curtis,

Attached is the file that I tried to open in the Visad spreadsheet cell. It
said that it "could not be converted to Visad data". I also saved it as a
.txt and opened it in Notepad just fine. Are you able to open it on yours?

Hi Michelle,

"Save spreadsheet file" should enable you to do this.
Are you trying to load the .ss file on a different machine
than the one you saved it with?  If not, this could be a
bug in the SpreadSheet.  Take a look at the .ss file (it
should be readable as plain text), and see if anything
looks suspicious.
