HI All,

I have write program which can convert jsp to excel format & i use MIME type is <%@ page contentType="application/" %>.

Now a days my company use open office 2.4. So my program is failed to convert open office(spreadsheet) format.

Can anybody help me to tell which MIME type i can use to solve this.

Following is my program.

<%@ page contentType="application/" %>
<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>

<% PreparedStatement ps=null;
Connection con=null;
ResultSet rs=null;
int m=0;
String f_date=request.getParameter("f_date");
String t_date=request.getParameter("t_date");

ps=con.prepareStatement("SELECT PV.VENDOR_NAME VNAME,FV.DESCRIPTION STATE,to_char(AIA.GL_DATE,'dd-mon-yyyy') GL_DATE,to_char

It may not work this way with OpenOffice. What this code creates is not an Excel file, it is an HTML table. Excel just happens to be able to read HTML files that contain tables, and imports those into sheets. Before you go further down this road, make sure that OpenOffice is capable of doing that, too. I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't.
I agree. Here's the link:
