I've been working with the HSSF4 Java POI procedures that I downloaded from the links previously listed on this mail list. I was able to get an RPG program to write out to a new Excel spreadsheet but I am having a problem getting a program to read from
an existing Excel spreadsheet.

I've included the error message, section of code in the HSSF4 service program where the error is occuring and the entire RPG program that I am calling. This program
is a version of the UPDDEMO RPG program that was part of the code in the
www.iseriesnetwork.com/noderesources/code/clubtechcode/ExcelCrtDemo.zip examples.

Does anyone know why I am receiving the following error? The error is occuring on
the following line in the RPG program:

book = hssf_open('/excel/BBNExpress.xls');


Here's the detailed message that I am receiving:

Message ID . . . . . . :   RNX0301       Severity . . . . . . . :   50

Message . . . . :   Java exception received when calling Java method.
Cause . . . . . :   RPG procedure HSSF_OPEN in program CBSCUSTM/HSSFR4
 received Java exception "java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError:" when calling

Below is the section of the HSSFR4 service program where the error occurred.
The error occurred on line 1266 / 126500.

Program:   HSSFR4         Library:   CBSCUSTM       Module:   HSSFR4

Here is the entire RPG program.  The HSSFR4 service program is part of the
OSBBNDDIR binding directory.
