I am trying to read data from excel file but it is giving me the following error:
Exception in thread "main" org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.OfficeXmlFileException: The supplied data appears to be in the Office 2007+ XML. POI only supports OLE2 Office documents
I am using Apache HSSF-POI version 3.2-FINAL-20081019.
My file has .xls extension.
Any idea what's wrong?
Thank you for your reply. Actually i wasn't using a correct file type. I was appending .xls extension to an Open Office org file preveously so only it was giving that error.
I tried with a MS-Excel (2003) file then it's working fine.
