Is it possible to display an XLS(excel) file in a JPanel? If so how difficult is it? If it can't be displayed directly from the file can it be recreated using javax.swing components?

Thank you
Tommy

You might want to check whether Jakarta POI HSSF (HSSF stands for "Horrible SpreadSheet Format" ) supports rendering Excel sheets in Swing components (I doubt it, however). If it doesn't, you can of course write your own UI layer in Swing for rendering a HSSFWorkbook object.
