Subject HSSFCell format/converting problem
Date Thu, 14 Oct 2010 10:55:06 GMT

Hi out there,

I got a problem when trying to read an Excel-cell sensefully with HSSFCell.
My basic intension here is to combine the date & time cells for a


Getting the string value of a date-cell was easy but I fail when trying to
get a useful time-value. The time-cell is Excel-internally formatted with


When switching inside Excel to "General" or "Number" we get a double with
0,75 which is ok for 18:00 representing a fraction of time based on one day.

In my code I tried various formatting things, but whatever I do the cell
value "2.9803240299224854" is returned. 

cell.getDateCellValue().toString() or
DateUtil.getJavaDate(cell.getNumericCellValue()).toString()  return

Tue Jan 02 23:31:39 CET 1900.

Does anyone have an idea how to get a String with "18:00:00" or something
that could be processed sensefully?

Thank you very much for your cooperation,

best regards

Jens from Germany.
