How can I read a specific excel cell via Web Dynpro ?

It will be great if someone will provide a short sample of code for that ...

<b>Hi

First You have to download the jxl.jar file. You can get this file from the Below site

<a href="http://www.andykhan.com/jexcelapi/download.html">JExcelApi v2.6.4 (1747kbytes)</a>

It will be in Compressed Fromat So Unzip it to get the Contents

After Unzipping The File You will get a Folder (jexcelapi/jxl.jar)

Now in NWDS open web dynpro explorer, Right Click Your Project, a popup menu will appear and in that click Properties

You will get window displaying your Project Properties

On Left Side of the window You Will Find "Java Build Path"

Click That "Java Build Path" and you will get 4 Tabs Showing ( Source,Projects,Libraries,Order and Export)

Click Libraries Tab

You will find options many options buttons

In that click the Button "Add External Jars"

You will get Window in order to fecth the jxl.jar file from the location you had stored

After selecting the jxl.jar i will get displayed and click ok

Now Open Navigator

Open Your Project

You will find Lib folder

Copy the jxl.jar to that lib folder

Note : You cannot Read the Content from the excel file directly

First You Have to copy that file to the Server,

And from the Server you can get the file absolute path

With the absolute path you can read the contents of the Excel file

You have to save the Excel file as .xls Format and Not as xlsx format i will not accept that...

You have Upload the Excel file from the Server Using the File Upload UI Element

This Coding will extract 3 columns from the Xls File
