Hi all,

I am new here and this is my first post. hope you will help

I have to export data from a html page to ms excel. I have to create a form , simple one, which when clicked on the submit button creates the excel file and input data according. Als o i would like to ask if some kind of mapping can be done so that i can enter specific data from the html form to specific cells in the excel page....

Any help would be Welcome.

Thank you in advance.

There are two ways I know of to get data into Excel. The first is to create a comma delimited file which Excel will open with no problem, but you lose all formatting, formulas, etc. If you want to get fancier such as doing more than a simple table layout or include formulas or multiple tabs, then you need to use a library such as Apache POI.

And please tone down the use of the bold and large fonts. It looks like you are shouting.
