Resolving formulas in cfspreadsheet

I have a very complex spreadsheet sent to me each week containing payroll data which I need to extract.  The spreadsheet contains several sheets and the summary page contains formulas in just about every cell, but this sheet contains the data I need.

Using cfspreadsheet and outputting it I get cell values like "fnnNormalWkOrdTime($A10,$EZ10-$FF10)-$FC10".  How can I resolve the formulas to a numeric value like "8"?  (Believe it or not, that is the value from that formula!)

Since there have been no replies I am assuming resolving formulas cannot be done using CFSpreadsheet.  I have trawled the net and found something that works for me in Java.
