Hi

I am using Apache POI event model with record awareness for parsing Microsoft Excel file. I am able to successfully parse the contents but i am facing problem in validating it. i don't care about the actual data present but want to validate some basic things like number of columns present in each row. Could any one suggest how to do it?


Thanks in Advance.

Hi,

number of columns present in each row


You can iterate over excel row using HSSFRow 's cellIterator method . from that you can estimate number of column
for each row .

What exactly do you mean by "parsing" and "validating"? POI can read and write XLS files, and provides access to cell contents; no more, no less. if you want certain cells to have certain contents (or rule out certain other contents) you will have to write code to check that.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
