I am using Jakarta HSSF POI to create an
. I am able to set password protection for the whole sheet.
But I need to set it only for a few columns and the others should be editable.
I checked in Excel and there is an option "Allow Users to Edit Ranges".
Is this feature available in Jakarta or are there any other APIs that have this feature.

The HSSFSheet class has methods to protect a sheet. Search its javadocs for "password".
I agree. Here's the link:
