    Hi Ankit,

    Above link is good when you know something or knowledge on excelsheet. But I don’t have knowledge also. So I want to go with basics first then I want to work on above link.

    So please suggest which site is the best for this (Basic knowledge).

    Hi rocky,

    Apache POI is suggestible then JXL because JXL supports only office 2007 excel sheet (.xls) where as POI supports both office 2007 and 2010 Excel formats (.xls and .xlsx)

    use XSSF class’s in POI to use workbook, sheet, row and column

    i suggest you to look at the following websites all are very good –
