See http://faq.javaranch.com/java/AccessingFileFormats for multiple solutions; Apache POI and jExcelApi being the most prominent.

Using ODBC with Excel has numerous problems; try one of the other options.

If you're set on using ODBC, however, then you'll need to show us the code that causes the exception, along with any runtime parameter values you may be using.

Class.forName( "sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver" );
c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:book",null,null);
stmnt = c.createStatement();
String query = "select URL from [Sheet1$] where Month='March' and Year=2000;";
ResultSet rs = stmnt.executeQuery( query );

System.out.println( "Found the following URLs for March 2000:" );
while( rs.next() )
{
System.out.println( rs.getString( "URL" ) );

Please go back to your post an edit it to add Code tags, so it will be easier to read.
Not a "beginning" topic: moving thread.
