Description Raju 2005-03-25 19:02:24 UTC
I am using the even model to read the large files and writing into a different 
file. I would like to know whether i can modify the excel file using event 
model or not.
I modified the ReaderWriter.java and getting the workbook as stream. From the 
stream i created Records and created workbook object. I would like know 
whether i can modify the Record objects and write it back to the workbook 
I am able to write and modify the excel files using HSSFWorkbook. Due to 
memory concerns we are getting OutOfMemory errors. We are not in a position to 
increase the memory. So i am trying to make use of low level API to write the 
excel file.
Please let me know if anyone has done some research in modifying the excel 
file using Event Model API.
Thanks in advance
