Hi! Is it possible to export data from a Java application to MS Word and MS Excel? If it's possible, how do you do it? We are currently working on a project that uses Java and our application needs to generate reports in MS Word aand MS Excel. Unfortunately, I am completely clueless how to go about this report generation thing. Could anyone please help me? Do you know of any sites where I can get specific information on how to export data from java to MS Word and Excel? Thanks so much.
The easiest way to do this for Excel is to output your data as comma-separated values, and pop a .csv on the end of the file name. Excel recognizes this format and will tabularize it for you, but be careful about fields with internal whitespace -- Excel may not handle those as you'd expect. I'm not sure what you mean by Word format. Do you also want a table for that? ------------------ Michael Ernest, co-author of: The Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide
