Description balamurugan 2007-12-28 02:00:05 UTC
Currently the system reads/retrieves cells based on cell index(row, column). The
JExcel application supports reading cells using its natural names(AB1, A1,
B1,etc.,) This functionality will reduce time to determine/search the exact cell.

This functionality may be included in HSSFSheet for a easy identification to the
end-user(developers).
