Subject Re: Using POI with Excel 2007
Date Wed, 30 May 2007 11:18:28 GMT

  Hi Nick:

  I had been looking into openxml4j which is a great idea, the problem is
that I can not wait that long to support Excel 2007, according to their road
map:
http://www.openxml4j.org/Documentation/Overview.html
the excel support won't be there until 2008.
  Thanks for your help.

Regards
