Hi,

I'm fairly new to java and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how practical java is for manipulating windows applications (e.g formatting Excel spreadsheets). If it's possible can someone recommend a good source to read up on this kind of thing?

Thanks

I just love the fact that Java has an API for practically anything.

Take a look at this:

Java Excel API - A Java API to read, write and modify Excel spreadsheets

A tutorial is available here:

Looks pretty cool :-)
