Ok thanks all.

Installed the older poi 3.0.1 as I don't see how to get the
JVM version. By the way, apparently it's possible to indicate
which version of JVM to use with a parameter if several
versions are installed. Anyone know that syntax?

Now my problem seems to be CLASSPATH as I'm getting a class
not found error.

Here's my classpath value :
Value . . . . . . . . . :

I'm not sure about this. My current directory when I sign on
is /home/FOXWELL. Can someone indicate if I have the right CLASSPATH?

Hi David,

It appears that you are using a version of Java that's too
old for the
version of POI that you downloaded. (That's what
UnsupportedClassVersionError means)

Either use a newer JVM or an older POI jar.

Hi, I've installed poi-3.6-20091214.jar and hssfr4.rpgle

reçu une erreur Java "java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError:

Is it the version of JAVA on the i or the wrong version of
hssfr4.rpgle? How do I check?
