Hi everyone,

I've downloaded the latest dev build 127.7 (+ additional libs).

When I launch a script which exports the query result in xlsx, I get this error message:

"Excel 2007 files are not supported because the OOXML libraries for POI are not available.
Make sure the following files from the POI distribution are present in the "ext" sub-directory where sqlworkbench.jar is located."

...even if the POI libs are present in the ext folder.

The same script works as usual with 127 stable release and previous dev build 127.6

I can't reproduce this (at least on Windows).

How are you starting SQL Workbench? And which operating system are you using?

Thanks for the additional information.

using java -jar sqlworkbench.jar doesn't use all libraries because I forgot to add a new library for POI in the MANIFEST (which is part of the .jar file)

If you use the provided sqlworkbench.cmd (or sqlwbconsole.cmd) or the .exe launcher then the classpath will be set correctly.

I will fix the MANIFEST definition for the next build. Thanks for the feedback.
