  1. workbook won't change color. In my org.apache.poi.ss.usermodel.Workbook it says that this element neither has attached source nor attached Javadoc and hence no Javadoc could be found. Please help me..

  2. You may be interested in checking this alternative, its API is a bit simpler, smoother and faster:

    For example, this is how you would create the same Excel file with it:

    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.util.ArrayList;
    import java.util.List;
    import com.gembox.spreadsheet.*;

    public class App {

    private static String[] columns = { "First Name", "Last Name", "Email", "Date of Birth" };
    private static List<Contact> contacts = new ArrayList<>();

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {

    contacts.add(new Contact("Sylvain", "Saurel", "sylvain.saurel@gmail.com", "17/01/1980"));
    contacts.add(new Contact("Albert", "Dupond", "sylvain.saurel@gmail.com", "17/01/1989"));
    contacts.add(new Contact("Johnny", "Clegg", "sylvain.saurel@gmail.com", "17/01/1956"));
    contacts.add(new Contact("Rob", "Robby", "sylvain.saurel@gmail.com", "17/01/1978"));
    contacts.add(new Contact("Dream", "Dreamer", "sylvain.saurel@gmail.com", "17/01/1987"));


    ExcelFile workbook = new ExcelFile();
    ExcelWorksheet sheet = workbook.addWorksheet("Contacts");

    ExcelFont headerFont = sheet.getRow(0).getStyle().getFont();
    headerFont.setSize(17 * 20);

    for (int i = 0; i< columns.length; i++) {
    sheet.getCell(0, i).setValue(columns[i]);

    int rowNum = 1;
    for (Contact contact : contacts) {
    ExcelRow row = sheet.getRow(rowNum++);
