  since HSSF cannot read an excel file which has XML inside it( gives invalid
hearder exception), I was wondering if there is any tool that can convert an XML
excel file into a conventional Excel file. In other words a toold that can
mimick the process of openning the XML Excel file and saving it as Excel.

off topic. POI/HSSF is a BIFF8 file reader.
