Hi All,
I want to use java to automate creation and editing of an excel sheet. I am having problems finding the Jar file for this API. Every time I download i get something other than the ".jar" itself. I am using the links from Apache
Can anyone help me?

That link is a source download, but you need the binary download that contains all the required jar files. You should have no problem finding that on the POI site.
I agree. Here's the link:
