Auto Expand Column/Cell Excel Writing in Java

Auto Expand Column/Cell Excel Writing in Java:

When you are writing an excel sheet through java program you will come to these kind of requirements. By default excel file will be generated without any auto fit to text or auto column width properties. We need to set the sheet and cell styles/properties for this externally.

 

Prerequisite:

  • You need all Apache Poi Jars to write the excel sheet through Java (Refer below post for all the jars)
  • I used pojo class named “GWCPojo” (which you can take/copy from the below link)
