  Reading and Writing Excel Files with POI
Subject:   Creating huge excel files using POI/HSSF

Many thanks to all involved in POI whichis extremely useful to so many of us.

I am having a problem when I create very big Excel files (1 MB and above) using POI/HSSF. Can anyone advise how to avoid the following error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
<<no stack trace available>>

Is there any sort of limitation? If yes, can it be overcome.

Thank you.

Has anyone found any solution for the problem ? or any work around . . .Because I have tried the other jxl and other jars, but still no results.Please note that I cannot increase my jvm memory.
