Adding Macro using Excel POI

abuyusuf asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We are generating an Excel spreadsheet in our application using Apache POI API - the spreadhseet has two tabs with a hyperlink on the first one leading to the second tab. When the hyperlink is clicked the user always gets a dialog box asking him if he would like to save his work - this is very annoying and we need a solution to fix it.

If the Excel spreadsheet was standalone the fix is easy - the following link provides a macro for that


But how can I do this through the POI API - from what I have found it is not possible but if someone has done it and can point me in the right direction that would be great
