I have an intranet application in JSP deployed on Tomcat server. I am sending a HTML table to an Excel sheet using
<%@ page contentType="application/vnd.ms-excel" %>
(saw it on one of the exisitng ques in experts-exchange, thanks for that)
But I want some added functionality.
I want to control the page setup features. When the user opens the excel sheet he should get

Orientation automatically selected as Landscape.
Scaling fit to one window.
Margin left 0.00
Margin right 0.00

How Can this be done?
Plz help, i'll be extermely grateful.

I don't think you can do this with the contentType setting.  That is just there to allow a quick and easy way to convert table data to a simple excel sheet.  If you want more control over the data, you'll need to use POI:
