Hi,
I had downloaded the POI API from jakarta for manipulating Excel files. I am using WSAD and I am left clueless as to how to use the API. I have the zip file of the package. Please help me use the API!!!

Regards.

There's an HSSF Quick Guide page in the zip file which shows all the major classes in action. You'll also find it online.

What I want to know is how to use the API in WSAD. Including the zip file in the java build path also does not help.

The zip file is not a Java archive. It's got a bunch of things in it, licenses, documentation, and the POI JAR files. You need to extract the POI JAR files and put those in your classpath.
