I am using the code

file = new File(fileName);
workbook = Workbook.getWorkbook(file);
Sheet sheet = workbook.getSheet(0);

The code is working fine for .xls (Excel 2003) and not working for .xlsx ( Excel2007). Is that anythin extra need for .xlsx files.Please help me.

The HSSF website clearly states that the library "does not support the new Excel 2007 .xlsx OOXML file format, which is not OLE2 based." Meaning you shouldn't expect it to work.
