Guys I had created a xls file in java using the Java Excel API in my java code,
I don't know how to write the file to a directory location in my computer, so that I can open the file and see the actual content of the xls file that I have created using the follwing code

WritableWorkbook workBook = Workbook.createWorkbook(new File("ExcelOut.xls"));

You need to call both workBook.write() and workBook.close() (in that order). Forgetting to call close() will still create a 0 byte file. Forgetting to call write() creates an invalid Excel file.
