This is because some symbols used by XXL are not exported from the
module STklos+Tk (the module which deals with STklos and Tk).
It will be exported in next release. Enclosed with this mail is a
patch file which correct temporarily this problem (and various ones which
comes after this one :-). The patch file provided corrects a suit of
minor problems with the new release of STk. When applied, it allows to
have a sheet opened but there are some unref cells in the first cells
of a sheet. I don't have tried to correct this bug.

BTW, I have spoke with Vincent (the author of XXL) and he is
interested to adapt XXL to STk 3.99.

Yes it is hard to read for a class such as Table. It was so hard that
in fact I have changed STklos to display such a message. This is
really simpler indeed!
