theres a few API's available to do that, you can try Jakarta's POI, which i haven't tried yet but i have used JExcelAPI, you'll find a link to it from POI's alternatives page but that link never works, try google search for it, it definately moved, sorry i cant find the right link anywhere in the jar i have, the docs dont say, and normally looking at package in source helps but not this time, if you want i'll mail the jar to you, drop a pvt msg else i'll try drop by here again later today

Reading Excel is just like accessing a database.
Do a search on Excel in the JDBC forum and you will get LOTS of info.

Export your data to Comma Separated Value (CSV) format and use libraries to read and write this format:
http://ostermiller.org/utils/ExcelCSV.html
Use excelread by Andy Khan to get excel data into your java program:
http://www.andykhan.com/excelread/
The apache project has a library which called POI that can read and write the HSSF (Horrible Spread Sheet Format) that excel uses.
http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/hssf/
Connect to an Excel spreadsheet file using jdbc.

Hi Friends!
I thing this code is usefull for you. I try the jax and it seems to easy to use. I created an excel file with a coloumn header, a row header, a row summary and a coloumn summary line. So ... For example:
test.xls contains that above:
B1 C1 D1 E1 SC
A2 1 1 1 1
A3 1 1 1 1
A3 1 1 1 1
A4 1 1 1 1
SR
My program summarizes the values.
The output will be:
Rows: 6
Cols: 6
Result: 16
-------------------------------------
import java.io.*;
import java.util.Date;
import jxl.*;
public class ImportXLS {
public static void main(String args[]) {
Workbook workbook;
File file;
Cell cel;
String str = "";
long lngSumm;

String strXLSFilename = "d:\\java\\programs\\test.xls";
System.out.println("filename: " + strXLSFilename);

try {
file = new File(strXLSFilename);
workbook = Workbook.getWorkbook(file);
Sheet sheet = workbook.getSheet(0);

lngSumm = 0;

System.out.println("columns:" + sheet.getColumns());
System.out.println("rows: " + sheet.getRows());

for (int a = 1; a < sheet.getColumns()-1; a++) {
for (int b = 1; b < sheet.getRows()-1; b++) {
cel = sheet.getCell(a,b);
str = cel.getContents();
try {
lngSumm += Double.valueOf(str).doubleValue();
} catch (Exception e) {
System.err.println("Error: " + e);
}
}
}
System.out.println("result: " + lngSumm);
workbook.close();
} catch (IOException e) {
System.err.print("I/O error.");
System.exit(0);
} catch (jxl.read.biff.BiffException e) {
System.err.print("Corrupt file or an another program use the XLS.");
System.exit(0);
}
}
}
