Using org.apache.poi to generate Excel spreadsheet - hyperlink throws dialog box

Hi - We are using the org.apache.poi from Java code to generate an excel spreadhseet with two tabs - there is a hyperlink on the first tab which links to the second one - the link argument is defined as follows

String linkFormula = "HYPERLINK(\"#'ERROR REPORT'!B2\", \"Failed Reason\")";

When the hyperlink is clicked we get a dialog box which states 'The document has been modified do you want to save the changes' even though no modifications have been made to the spreadsheet. Is there a way to suppress this dialog box ?

Anyone has any ideas on this one ?
Perhaps you can attach an example of the spreadsheet with such link?
