What I could see from that example is, that the empty cell number 7 is
I know it *is* there because of the Index, like described below

> Ss:Index is used to keep track of table structure. Try 
> ss:Cell[@ss:Index = '6']/Data

But this only works if the cell actually have the Index set, that is not
One way or another I could end up, with an Excel spreadsheet, where I
neither can get a match for ss:Cell[6]/ss:Data or ss:Cell[@ss:Index =
'6']/Data, even though the data is there.

This I already have figured out without reading it from the documentation ;)

My originally request was to do what you describe below

Actually, if anyone has an example of such a generic table handler I would
very much like to see it.
