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();
