Converting .xls to csv

Hi all

Ok so I can read a .xls file using HSSF, but now I need to convert it to a .csv file so another process can use it. Is there an easy way to do that using POI other then manually rebuilding the file?

Thanks,

AMD

POI doesn't support CSV, but the Ostermiller Utils do.
