hi,

if u want to read or write Excel or PowerPoint files log on to.

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/binindex.cgi

just select the mirror and start downloading.

and as far as M$ Word is concerned its in an early development stage..no jars r available right now...u have to download each and every file manually..

cheers
Ashish.

You might also want to look at the Jacob Project for automating Microsoft Word from Java.


I have used the bridge to successfully access Word documents from Java in a commercial project.
