When creating an excel file using HSSF that contains more than 1000 rows , it 
can not be opened by excel application , the error message the excel 
application gives when openning the file is :
"Too many different cell formats".

So it means I can use HSSF to write excel files with less than 1000 rows.
I need to deal with maximum rows as excel can handel (~65000 rows)
