Hi all,

I hav a requirement like converting an excel file into a CSV file and then hav to read their contents ...

Previously i worked on parsing XML file using SAX parser ...but this one really sounds new to me...

Handling CSV involves dealing with a number of special cases, which makes it a bit harder than it would at first appear. The easiest way may be to use an existing library, lik ethe Ostermiller Utils, which are linked on the AccessingFileFormats wiki page.
