It doesn't look like the code writes to MyExcel2.xls. It writes to whatever is returned in line 2. I'm not sure what that would be - java.util.File has no method called createTempFile(String).

Very sorry...the code there is actually like this:
excelFile = File.createTempFile("MyExcel1", ".xls",new File("C:\"));

OK, so that confirms it - nothing would get written to MyExcel2.xls.

Why are you using createTempFile instead of "new File"?
