Hi All,

I created an excel using jsp by setting content type as excel, the size of the excel is coming nearly around 5MB. If copy the content of that 5MB excel content and paste it and created another excel directly. The size of the new excel is coming around 1 MB.

It will be great if any body reply me as soon as possible.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You can't create XLS files using a JSP. I'm guessing that you're creating an HTML table that happens to be readable by Excel; correct? If so, it's no surprise that the data takes up much less space once it's in Excel, because all those HTML tags are gone.
