I have a excel file with a predefined name, location and column names. Now can I read the data from this excel file into my Java program. I just know the column name and I need to read all the rows of data. Number of rows will vary dynamically.

There are a couple of libraries for accesing Excel files in Java. Check out the AccessingFileFormats page.
