Subject Qn regarding HSSFDataFormat
Date Fri, 09 Jun 2006 14:28:56 GMT
Why does the HSSFDataFormat define a bunch of predefined formats? Isn't
this less flexible than the Java way of doing it (SimpleDateFormat for
example), where you can construct your own format string? I need to
define my own format string in HSSFDataFormat. The javadoc shows this:
"Utility to identify builin formats. Now can handle user defined data
formats also. The following is a list of the formats as returned by this
It says it can handle user defined data formats also. But the javadoc
for this class is terrible. Nowhere does it say *how* this can be done.
Does anyone know how to do this?
