Disabling Applet Alert

I have written code in java, to generate a report in an excel file.
But when I am running this program, it gives me applet alerts every time, which ask me permission to read/write.
I wish to either disable this alert, or make it allow to access every time.
Is there a way to disable this applet alert?

You're running into a security feature of the applet sandbox. Read HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem to learn about the two principal ways around this.
I agree. Here's the link:
