In this program we are going create a sheet and
then by use of setRepeatingRowsAndColumns() method we create the repeating rows
or repeating column .
The package we need to import is java.io.*,java.util.* ,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.
HSSFCell,org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRow, org.apache.poi.usermodel. HSSFPrintSetup and org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel. HSSFWorkbook.
In this example we are going to create a sheet and set repeating rows and columns .We can set repeating rows and repeating columns by passing parameter values (-1 or 0).
The method used in this example shift row

As you see there are five parameters we are passing. These parameters are sheetIndex, startColumn, endColumn, startRow and endRow .The startColumn is 0 based start of repeating columns,the endColumn is 0 based end of repeating columns, the startRow is 0 based start of repeating rows and the endRow is 0 based end of repeating rows.
