I know there are some programs out there, that are displaying excel files. Are those guys using their own APIs to read excel files or android API offers this capability? I am unable to find anything on google. I want to be able to read cells in a excel sheet.

Thanks
Imad

There are no libraries that support reading and writing to excel files, AFAIK. You can consider using third party jars for the same: a team mate of mine is working with jExcelAPI by Andrew Khan..see if that can help.

Apache POI can read Excel format (at least pre-OOXML versions), but I don't know if it works in Android.

On all my mobile devices there's been a separate vendor-supplied spreadsheet application program. Usually a stripped-down version of Excel itself or something similar.

Slightly off-topic, but the OOXML file formats are now part of the officially released POI version as well (as opposed to jExcelApi, for which no OOXML support seems to be forthcoming).
