import org.apache.poi.hssf.util.* ;


public class FirstServlet extends HttpServlet
{
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req,HttpServletResponse res)
throws ServletException,IOException
{
res.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
res.setHeader("Content-disposition","attachment;filename=Web_Transact_Report.xls");
//res.setContentType("text/html"); //MIME
PrintWriter out = res.getWriter(); //Character Stream to Browser
out.println("<HTML>");
out.println("<body>");
out.println("<H1>Welcome</h1>");
out.println("<table border=1>");
out.println("<tr>");
out.println("<td>slno</td>");
out.println("<td>name</td>");
out.println("</tr>");
out.println("<tr>");
out.println("<td>1</td>");
out.println("<td>Abhilash</td>");
out.println("</tr>");
out.println("<tr>");
out.println("<td>2</td>");
out.println("<td>Sarvana</td>");
out.println("</tr>");
out.println("</th>");
out.println("</table>");
System.out.println("Going to create Excel file");
int rownum = 0 ;
HSSFWorkbook wb = new HSSFWorkbook();
HSSFSheet sheet = wb.createSheet("Transaction Report");
System.out.println("Going to create rows");
HSSFRow row = sheet.createRow((short)rownum);
rownum++;
/*HSSFCellStyle headerStyle = wb.createCellStyle();
HSSFFont headerfont = wb.createFont();
headerfont.setBoldweight(HSSFFont.BOLDWEIGHT_BOLD);
headerfont.setColor((short)9);
headerfont.setFontName("Arial");
headerStyle.setFont(headerfont);
headerStyle.setFillBackgroundColor((short)18);
headerStyle.setFillPattern(HSSFCellStyle.SOLID_FOREGROUND);*/
HSSFCell cel ;
cel = row.createCell((short)0);
cel.setCellValue("Slno");
//cel.setCellStyle(headerStyle);
cel = row.createCell((short)1 );
cel.setCellValue("Name");
//cel.setCellStyle(headerStyle);
System.out.println("writing data to response");
wb.write(res.getOutputStream());
out.println("</body></html>");
}
}

Javaranch tip:

If you are going to post more than a line or two of your code, wrap that
code in a set of UBB Code tags.
Doing so will help to preserve your code's indenting, making it easier to read.
If it is easier to read, more people will actaully read it and you will
stand a better chance of getting help with your question.



I think this pretty much sums up your problem:

Also, you're not going to be able to send both a text/html stream and a binary Excel sheet back in one response.
