I wrote an article on parsing spreadsheets using POI/HSSF for the iSeries
Network's Club Tech iSeries Programming Tips newsletter. There is a
service program included with the article that does most of the
grunt work for you -- you just have to provide some RPG routines to handle
the data that's pulled out of the spreadsheet.

If you're a member of the iSeries Network, you can read that article here:

If you're not a member, you can create a free "Associate" account to read
the article.
