Hi,
I am using jxl api to read data from excel spreadsheet in java. I am facing the problem when I start reading date from the spreadsheet. If I enter the date as mm/dd/yyyy format and then I get the data in Cell object using the getContents method it returns me date in mm/dd/yy format.
I want to know how to get the value that is entered in the cell as it is if the data is in date format.
Thanks and Regards,
Shweta
