<tr><td>Enter First Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="firstName"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Enter Last Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="lastName"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Enter User Name:</td><td><input type="text" name="userName"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Enter Address:</td><td><input type="text" name="address"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Enter Email ID:</td><td><input type="text" name="email"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Enter DOB:</td><td><input type="text" name="dob"></td></tr>
<tr><td><input type="submit" value="Export to excel"></td></tr>

<[email protected] import="*"%>
<[email protected] import="org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet"%>
<[email protected] import="org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook"%>
<[email protected] import="org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRow"%>
<[email protected] import="org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFCell"%>
String value1=request.getParameter("firstName");
String value2=request.getParameter("lastName");
String value3=request.getParameter("userName");
String value4=request.getParameter("address");
