Hi Friend,

Try the following code:

import org.apache.poi.hpsf.*;
import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.*;
import org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.POIFSFileSystem;

public class ReadCSV{
public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
POIFSFileSystem fs = new POIFSFileSystem(new FileInputStream("C:\\excelFile.xls"));
HSSFWorkbook wb = new HSSFWorkbook(fs);
HSSFSheet sheet = wb.getSheetAt(0);
HSSFRow row;
HSSFCell cell;
int counter=0;

int rows;
rows = sheet.getPhysicalNumberOfRows();
int cols = 0;
int tmp = 0;

for(int i = 0; i < 10 || i < rows; i++) {
row = sheet.getRow(i);
if(row != null) {
tmp = sheet.getRow(i).getPhysicalNumberOfCells();
if(tmp > cols) cols = tmp;

System.out.println("CSV File Data:");
for(int r = 0; r < rows; r++) {
row = sheet.getRow(r);
if(row != null) {
for(int c = 0; c < cols; c++) {
cell = row.getCell((short)c);
if(cell != null) {
System.out.println(cell+" ");
} catch(Exception ioe) {
