    Default copying a excel sheet from a workbook to another through java


    I am trying to copy a excel sheet from one workbook to another using POI api in java. To be more clear, lets say we have two workbooks bookA and bookB both having two sheets. I want to copy sheet2 of bookA to sheet2 of bookB.

    Help me with some code snippets if you came across any...
    Thanks in advance...

    IOW "do my work for me". No. The examples on their website show both reading a sheet and creating/writing a sheet. So combine those two things.

    Default IOException Exception Invalid header signature

    I tried and got it. The program works fine as a stand-alone application. I tried to integrate the code to an existing code. I got an issue. The following is the code

    // create FOS for PnR sheet
    FileOutputStream csvFileOut = new FileOutputStream(pnrCsvFileName);
    System.out.println("===> csvFileOut created");

    InputStream srcFis = new FileInputStream(fileName);

    HSSFWorkbook srcWb = new HSSFWorkbook(srcFis);

    //get the PnR sheet for excel
    HSSFSheet excelPnrSheet = (HSSFSheet) srcWb.getSheet("PnR Input Data");

    //create a new csv workbook
    HSSFWorkbook csvWorkbook = new HSSFWorkbook();
    //create a sheet in the csv file
    HSSFSheet csvPnrSheet = (HSSFSheet) csvWorkbook.createSheet("PnR Input Data");
    boolean copyStyle = false;

    //start copying
    excelToCsvUtilObj.copySheets(csvPnrSheet, excelPnrSheet, copyStyle);
    System.out.println("===> COPIED!!!");
    //write the excel and csv files


    When i run the application, the execution of the line
    HSSFWorkbook srcWb = new HSSFWorkbook(srcFis) reports
    IOException Exception Invalid header signature; read 63361219987247567, expected -2226271756974174256

    copySheets() methods works fine in the stand-alone application.

    It seems some problem occurs while creating InputStream srcFis at "InputStream srcFis = new FileInputStream(fileName)" and
    fileName is available and its pointing to the right file.

    Kindly help me if anyone experience/knows about the problem..
    Thanks in advance...
