Hi,

I am trying to make some heading in an excel file.

I wrote a java code to write the same.
In the code, simply used a buffered writer to write in a file.
Formatted print messages with comma separated so that if i ll open the text file in excel it will show proper messages.

Now i want some content to be bold.
Tried <B> but didn't work.

Give me a path to achieve this..

Thanks,
Tanzy.

You need to use something like Apache POI

Or try using XML. But you cannot achieve this by using plain text, like a csv file.

... something like Apache POI

... and its Quick Guide shows how to work with fonts, bold or otherwise.

Too difficult a question for "beginning Java." Moving thread.
