You're asking how to modify an Excel spreadsheet, and how to download a file? Neither of those are questions about XML. Or is this a question about JXL, whatever that is?

Okay. JXL is open-source so let's move this to the Other Open Source forum. But it would be better if you asked your questions individually, so you could ask them in their appropriate forums.
I agree. Here's the link:
