Yes, all of the examples work. all of the jars you need are in the POI 3.12 distro except for xlparse, but that is from Scott. I copied my POI jars to the IFS using WinScp. You can see in the classpath where I put them. You, however, can put them wherever you want them. Just make sure your classpath matches the full path. The POI documentation will tell you which jars you need based on what you want to do.

Subject: Re: POI 3.6


Actually, I did download POI 3.12, so that is good. I am a newbie at Java. Are you saying that with the POI 3.12 download, that I do not need the dom4j-1.6.1.jar, xbean.jar, and jsr173_1.0_api.jar downloads?

Also, does Scott Klement's sample programs he provided with his POI 3.6 download and its documentation work with POI 3.12?

Finally, does the CLASSPATH "value" need to have one entry in it for each *.jar file needed, and is does that entry need to include the complete path for each entry?

Thank you,
