In my application, i am creating a new XL file using the code below.

File f = new File("ABC.xls");

There is a link in my application which opens this file. The XL file created using the above code is of type MS Office 97-2003. If i want to create a XL of type MS Office 2007, what should i do?

Thanks in advance.

That code just creates a File object with a given name, assuming the "current" directory. It has nothing to do with the XL content type and does not create a disk file.
