Subject AW: Reading XLS zip code +4 cells
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2005 15:53:14 GMT
Hi Matt.

Why don't you use strings?

Your format obviously is interpreted as a numeric format. So leading
zeros get lost. If you want to keep on with your solution you'll have to
format the resulting number to a string corresponding to your format

Betreff: Reading XLS zip code +4 cells


I'm reading data from an XLS sheet using POI. One of the columns 
contains data in the Excel Zip Code + 4 format. However, the values that

are being returned are not in the correct format. For example, a zip 
code value of 00009-4612 is being returned as 94612. After trying a 
bunch of different things, here's a snippet of what I'm doing now:

HSSFCellStyle zipStyle = hssfworkbook.createCellStyle();
HSSFCell c = row.getCell(zipCol);
if (cellType == HSSFCell.CELL_TYPE_NUMERIC)
    Double D = new Double(c.getNumericCellValue());
    Integer I = new Integer(D.intValue());
    double d = D.doubleValue();
    int i = I.intValue();
    if(d > i)
        returnString = D.toString();
    returnString = I.toString();
else if (cellType == HSSFCell.CELL_TYPE_STRING) returnString = 
else if (cellType == HSSFCell.CELL_TYPE_FORMULA) returnString = 

I know I'm probably doing something very, very wrong so if someone could

point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
