I am using Export to excel in my servlets. where in the user will be shown some details in the Excel format. I get data from the database and append it with "\n" for an new line and "\t" for a new column.
then i simply use the following to display the results in the excel sheet on hte browser.
OutputStream output = objHttpServletResponse.getOutputStream();
output.write((byte[]) pstrFormatedData .getBytes());
Where pstrFormatedData is the data from the database after adding with "\n" and "\t"
It works fine, but if there is some data in the database which alrady have "\n" or "\t", then i have problem. As this data should be displayd in a single column, but this data is displayd in multiple columns. Is there any way out.
I agree. Here's the link:
