Class EventBasedExcelExtractor

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Closeable, AutoCloseable, ExcelExtractor

    public class EventBasedExcelExtractor
    extends POIOLE2TextExtractor
    implements ExcelExtractor
    A text extractor for Excel files, that is based on the HSSF EventUserModel API. It will typically use less memory than ExcelExtractor, but may not provide the same richness of formatting. Returns the textual content of the file, suitable for indexing by something like Lucene, but not really intended for display to the user.

    To turn an excel file into a CSV or similar, then see the XLS2CSVmra example
