About the tutorial

Second if condition is only for second cell. Like that rest of the if conditions. No else statement is included. My doubt is that, when we move from one if condition to another, will the cells also gets incremented using cellIterator. Or else do I have to increment the cell after every if condition? Nice tutorial.

Hi Lokesh, my case study is how to get data from the excel file into values of the attributes of java objects the goal is making many objects that get values from the excel file. How can we save the values and then assign its to the attributes of objects?

Could you show me the steps to solve it! Thank so much! I am understanding it correctly, you want to read all columns in a row and set as attribute in a object, right?? Have you tried it doing yourself first? Yes, I used jexcelapi library to get data from excel file, but I dont know how to assign the values to objects. I think I have to use ArrayList to store them.

Thanks for reply! Hi,Thanks for the tutorial. Kindly tell me how to check for not null fields while importing data from an excel into a table?. XmlObject at java. Please make sure you have this jar in classpath.

I have a simple problem i guess. Let me know where you are struck. I really do not have time to write whole program from beginning.

The error says Type Mismatch: What might be the problem? I really doubt that any database would be capable of doing that. At least I am not aware of any such capability. You can write another thread which keep reading data from source and write it to database.

Use below post code to read data into String. NO idea. I will explore this.

Nothing is impossible. Are you able to read data one line at a time? If not then solve this problem first. Look for them and use them. Displaying in s is not a big problem. You can use Thread. I am not aware of any delay like feature in java. The most closely related feature is asynchronous operations. Regarding your problem, I do not fully understand your problem.

But, from what I understood, you can use a queue, where you push bytes into the queue and a running thread pulls desired number of bytes or available bytes if less bytes are present in queue at moment and display them on screen. While searching for my problem I came across your post.

I came across great Java Excel component by the name of Aspose. Cells for Java. It is not open source, but contains very powerful features. Some Examples with code are: Hi sir,I want to read an excel file having checkboxes and combo boxes,is it possible to do it in java sir. Try if useful…..

A good tutorial for beginners to understand and grasp the concepts quickly. I need to dynamically retrieve data from MySql database and then write it to an Excel file. How do I go about achieving this? Thanks in advance.

I use Aspose. Cells for Java Library for creating, writing , modifying and even converting excel files to many formats and this library offers many features that java developers can use in their application. The list of Jar that mentioned that need to include are total That is really to huge if want to allow user to download application via internet. Yes, I have worked on such project which was basically a desktop application.

Total project size with jars was But after creating exe for that project, size reduced to 7. I have huge number of records in one excel as repository. If i go with cell by cell it takes lot of time. In my knowledge, POI do not have this functionality or any other simple search functionality. You have to iterate through cells and observe the content for match.

Try using: Hi Sachin, first find any tool to crack the password. Then read it. I am not aware of any other way. I have a issue with excel. I have column with a date values which are taken as decimal and through dbunit the values are saving into db. While entering the values in the template if the green triangle is not coming it doesnt read those values as text i think that is feature of excel. My issue is if suppose i enter in date column and without that triangle apperance in excel than in the db it is getting stored in exponential format like 2.

Now if i do something like setting first cell type as string and then setting string value then it is throwing illegal state exception. Please suggest what needs to be done in such case. Will it help? The problem is i am checking for condition if cell type is numeric then inside that condition i am checking if isCellDateFormatted Cell cell and if it is then i am getting date value of cell and setting it to the out cell.

But if it returns false then i am setting outCell. In my case the the second condition outCell. Try changing width of cell in excel. Sometimes number fields show up in exponential form when there is not enough width to show them. Thanks for the quick reply, am using Xlsx verison and poi 3.

In excel if i type 8 then its reading as 8. But if i insert 8. How to solve this problem? You should really do not need to make this change. If you assign this numeric value 8.

You need to write the lines in bunch. Say in bunch of lines.

Once you write lines, flush in file system. Do it in loop. POI is not memory effective. I also faced such problem once. I ended up doing what i suggested you.

Hi Sri, I have faced such problem in past and yes , memory problems occurs frequently when working with POI. So, to avoid such memory issues, initialize the program with bigger JVM memory. Second thing is to write data periodically flush in filesystem, rather than populating whole sheet and then write it to filesystem.
