Hi Guys,

can anybody explain in plain, simple english what is the difference between Cell and XSSFCell class?
When to use and why?

I do not want to wonder about it in the future and use just proper class for my purposes.

Documentation

Best Wishes,
Jacek

Cell is not a class, it's an interface which is implemented by several concrete class implementation, HSSFCell (for XLS documents) and XSSFCell (for XLSX documents) being the most important ones.

If you can, always use the classes in org.apache.poi.ss (which work for both XLS and XLSX), rather than the ones in org.apache.poi.hssf and org.apache.poi.xssf, which work for only one of those respective formats.
