Thank you for this wonderful article. But anyone tell after I download zip file from internet, how can I use the POI. There should be some classpath set so that when we compile java program that uses POI package, the compiler knows where to find the package.

    Hi Arpan

    you just have to add the file called "poi-2.5.1-final-20040804.jar" to your classpath ...note that filename may vary depending upon the version you have downloaded for the poi package .

    i would suggest you to download the latest vesion from jakarta POI binary realease page which is ""
    2.extract it to the folder say
    3. and then simply add to the classpath..

    thats it .
