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

1.download "poi-bin-2.5.1-final-20040804.zip"
2.extract it to the folder say
3. and then simply add to the classpath..

thats it .
