Jakarta POI Autosize

I've created an Excel-sheet with the Jakarta POI API. I now want to autosize my columns, but I can't find a function in the API that can autosize my columns. The only thing I found is setColumnWidth. Can anybody point me out to an autosize-function in the POI-API.

Thank you.

AFAIK you cannot do it. The reason behind this is the lack of good font metrics. You will have to find the length of the data manualyl and set the size of the column. Check the POI mailing list, the subject has been discussed in the apst several times.
