I am populating the data into the excel format.

Here is the code

Enumeration en = ht.elements();

int colCnt = ht.size();
int hdrCnt;
for(hdrCnt =1; hdrCnt<=colCnt; hdrCnt++)


I can get only col numbers in the hdrCnt.But I want to get the colnames from the databases. If I say out.print(ht.get(hdrcnt)), I am getting the null not the names.

Can any one please tell me, how can I get the colnames here

Hint: you don't do anything with the "en" variable. You probably should.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
I agree. Here's the link:
