    Reading Excel with Java

    I am trying to read the cells of an Excel file using Java.

    When I execute the attached code- I get this error:

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problems:
    Default constructor cannot handle exception type BiffException thrown by implicit super constructor.Must define an explicit constructor.
    Default constructor cannot handle exception type IOException thrown by implicit super constructor. Must define an explicit constructor.

    The error highlights the Workbook workbook= line

    I have no idea what that means. Any suggestions would be greatly accepted!!!

    Is jxl archive a standard archive?

    Perhaps the code in the archive is messed up, or perhaps it was written some years back so it is incompatible with newer excel files. Try it with an excel 95 file or something.

    it turned out that I needed to try,catch
    an io and biff exception.

    dont really know why, but now the program runs.

    thanx anyway!

    Lol, I thought so first but then thought that kind of error gave different compilation error output
