Note that POI versions before 3.5 do not support XSLX.

If you are, in fact, using a POI version that does support XLSX, post the code you're using. Knowing what exception is thrown would also be useful.

The HSSF* classes are for working with XLS files, not XLSX. There are other classes (in some package called *.ss.*) that work with both formats; the POI documentation has the details on that.
