The error is not coming from XLSX2CSV.process but from XSSFReader.SheetIterator.hasNext. Can you show us the code for that nested class? Please also indicate which line of that class is line 207 in the source file.

That question is too difficult for “beginning”, so I have moved it.

Rob,

I made a mistake in XLSX2CSV class, I was refering my local XSSFReader class which is wrong. I have modified code to refer org.apache.poi.xssf.eventusermodel.XSSFReader class, now it is workign fine. I am able to read xlsx files.
But it is taking around 10 mins time to read around 50 mb file, can you tell me in which part of code I can refactor to reduce processing time.

Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
