Subject Re: Empty column Problem in excel file
Date Fri, 21 Mar 2008 09:01:24 GMT

I found a solution to my problem. In case somebody has the same someday here
is what you can do:
(it was difficult because with a null cell you can't do anything so the
solution i found is to create a new cell instead when i found the null cell)
 int colToDelete = 0;
for(short i=0;i<=r.getLastCellNum();i++)
      HSSFCell c = r.getCell(i);
           colToDelete = i;
      for(short i=(short)colToDelete;i<r.getLastCellNum();i++)
           HSSFCell c2 = r.createCell( (short) i);
           c2.setCellValue(r.getCell( (short) (i +
      r.removeCell(r.getCell( (short)r.getLastCellNum()));
      for(short k=1;k<=sheetData.getLastRowNum();k++)
            HSSFRow r2 = sheetData.getRow((short)k);
            for(short i=(short)colToDelete;i<r2.getLastCellNum();i++)
                  HSSFCell c2 = r2.createCell( (short) i);
                  c2.setCellValue(r2.getCell( (short) (i +
             r2.removeCell(r2.getCell( (short)r2.getLastCellNum()));
Thank you for trying.
