Hi All,
while writing CSV (reading data from excel file)I'm checking (CSV file) if file exist or not in specified directory. If exist I'm trying to update existing CSV (with new rows from excel) file. If not existing I'm creating new CSV file(this part working fine).
I'm blocked while updating CSV with new rows, Please check my code and let me know the way to complete this.

Try closing the readers opened in below code just like you close your writer before calling the delete() method on the file object.

If you check our AccessingFileFormats FAQ entry you can find a few libraries that can do the hard work for you. I myself recommend opencsv.

There's probably an embedded object in there which JExcelAPI cannot handle.

If I use JExcelAPI for xlsx files getting error. Changed to apache poi XSSF, now I'm able to convert xlsx files into CSV format.
When I am trying to convert large (file size around 50,000 kb) file getting Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space. I have increased my heap size to 1024.

-Xmx1024M

JExcelApi does not support XLSX, and it's unlikely that it ever will.

While testing with xlsx, came to know that.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
