Hi all,

I don�t know if that is the correct place to ask for help about POI.
If it isn�t, please forgive me.

Well, I have a web page that opens an Excel template in other floating window. Users can write in some of the Excel cells, and in the parent page there must be a button to update web page data whith those data written in the Excel page. So I need to update some fields of the page via Excel...

... And I'm a bit lost...!! Can I do that with POI?

Does anybody know how can I develop such thing? Any suggestion?

Thank you!!

One possible way is have the user save the changes to his local machine and then upload the modified file to the server (with html file upload).
Then, you can analyze the file with POI.

Thanks, Gabriel.

I�ve thougth this way too... I was looking of a straight way to do this, but maybe there is not any way to manipulate that Excel in "real time" without saving it...

Thanks a lot again,

David
