using Templates error

So I tried using a template I got a weird problem

in the template file if there is a row which is all empty, then writing to a cell in that row produces a null reference exception.

                t_sheet1.GetRow(i).GetCell(1).SetCellValue(RemoteId); //row i = 2 is empty

problem is fixed by creating a dummy column and filling it with ids, or using CreateCell.

But  however when attempting to write to a file, I get the following error.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

the write code is copied from the examples solution, pasted here:

            FileStream file = new FileStream(@"test.xls", FileMode.CreateNew);

and the full exception call stack is this:
