So Kohei just tested that the functions are imported without an error
(which made sense as he was writing a test for a bug). What I was
suggesting for your case is that you take some of the corner cases that you
know and write a test for them. This is what I started once for ODS with
testFunctionsODS. That way we can test that we import the function and that
the function behaves correctly in the corner cases. Hopefully this helps to
make sure that nobody ever breaks this function.

Btw if your only problem with writing test cases is that you don't have
access to Excel just ask for help. Kohei, Eike and I have access to Excel
and can surely create the test file that you need or check that your file
imports correctly.
