I am exporting data into excel from my jsp page using,
<%response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");%>

It works fine.

What I would like to be able to do, however, is to create a new sheet (or tab if you prefer) for each table ( Suppose one table in jsp provides the information on employees and other table provides the information on departments).That means here two excell sheet will be created, one contains the information about employee and another contains information about department. Here I am not using any third party component like jxl etc.

Does anybody have an idea how to do this in jsp.

I would appreciate any help,

Swarup Sarkar

I don't think so. It�s not possible with JSP/HTML. JSP displays HTML content in Excel format that�s not a true Excel work book to display multiple work sheets.

When you decided to use different worksheet in a same workbook you have to use JXL or any other third party API.

Swarup,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Apache's HSSF is a good library for working with more complex Excel documents. I recommend using a servlet rather than a JSP since you will be dealing with a lot of Java code.
