If you just need a quick and dirty method to extract the text from an Excel spreadsheet then you can use the ExcelExtractor class included in POI. The following example snippet shows its usage:
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(file); HSSFWorkbook workbook = new HSSFWorkbook(in) : ExcelExtractor extractor = new ExcelExtractor(workbook); String text = extractor.getText();
