Description Yi Zhenfei 2015-08-05 09:07:26 UTC
in DataContainer.cs line 864		
protected override void DoCopyValue (DataContainer from, int from_index, int to_index)
    _values [to_index] = (double) GetContainerData (from.GetValue (from_index));

GetContainerData may return null, and casting it to double will cause a NullReferenceException.

I found this when I was trying to migrate my application from windows to linux. It works fine on windows(with official .NET runtime), but it will crash for this reason on linux.

The stacktrace:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
  at System.Data.Common.DoubleDataContainer.DoCopyValue (System.Data.Common.DataContainer from, Int32 from_index, Int32 to_index) [0x00000] in /root/mono-4.0.2/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data.Common/DataContainer.cs:866

The caller is ExcelDataReader, a third party library, so I cannot tell how it's using the class.
