Subject AW: How to use POI for reading Excel 2.1 format?
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2006 10:53:40 GMT
Hi Suyog.

I used it already some years ago. So I'm not so much inside the details.

They've a mailing list (dev@sc.openoffice.org) (SC is standing for
spreadsheet, the pendant to Excel and being able to read from and write to
Excel). I had a very good experience in that mailing list. Several people
from Sun helped a lot. Let's hope that Sun's shrinking hasn't affected this.

If I see code snippets I could compare it with my application from that
time.

Regards,	Karl-Heinz.

Betreff: Re: How to use POI for reading Excel 2.1 format?

Hi,
Sorry for a silly question, but I am really stuck and not able to run even
the OpenOffice APIs. My code is unable to instantiate the BootStrap of
OpenOffice. I have set the basic environment variables properly, and the
libs are also in place, but still not able to run the code. I know I am
missing something in configuration, but unable to figure out what.
The exception I get is the BootStrapException: "no office executable found!"
Please can anyone help me in figuring out, what might be missing in my
configuration?
Thanks,
Suyog
