Hi All,

I am trying to read an excel file created from Linux Ubuntu machine. I am using POI api to read. But I am getting below error.
Please help.

java.io.IOException: Unable to read entire header; 92 bytes read; expected 512 bytes
at org.apache.poi.poifs.storage.HeaderBlock.alertShortRead(HeaderBlock.java:226)
at org.apache.poi.poifs.storage.HeaderBlock.readFirst512(HeaderBlock.java:207)
at org.apache.poi.poifs.storage.HeaderBlock.<init>(HeaderBlock.java:104)
at org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.POIFSFileSystem.<init>(POIFSFileSystem.java:138)
at com.test.ReadExcel.ReadCSV(ReadExcel.java:28)


Java Code:- The same code is working for other excel file created in windows.



Any help is appreaciated.

Thanks,
Kousik

Then to me, the most likely source of the problem is that the files created in Windows are well-formed and the file created in Linux is not. Which means that looking at the code which reads those files isn't going to be helpful at all. You have to look at the process which produces them.
