Subject [HSSF] Cell Data Formats
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2007 17:18:33 GMT
I've used POI/HSSF for a number of years, parsing excel sheets using the 
event model. Until now we knew the format of the data we were expecting 
and processed accordingly.

Now however I want to be able to get numeric data in the format its 
displayed to the user - dates, numbers currencies. Looking around HSSF I 
don't really see anything for converting the excel data format into an 
equivalent java one (e.g. DecimalFormat / SimpleDateFormat). The only 
related thing I found was for the built in formats in 
SVTableCellRenderer in "contrib" (see http://tinyurl.com/2d2bw9).

So I was thinking of writing a data format parser for custom data 
formats - but just wanted to confirm nothing exists for this yet. Also 
if it doesn't exist is it a feature that POI would be of interested in 
having contributed?
