with this code i wrote 3000 rows - two cell in each row - and without
any problems

This is your complete code, which puts three pairs form Hashmpa onto Excel Spreadsheet
You'll see

two b
one a
three c

in the to three rows of your excel file

Tested it with poi-3.7.jar

            int j = 0;
            for(Map.Entry<String,String> men : ss){

			HSSFRow row1 = worksheet.createRow((short) j);
                j++;

			HSSFCell cellA1 = row1.createCell((short) 0);
			cellA1.setCellValue(men.getKey());
			HSSFCellStyle cellStyle = workbook.createCellStyle();
			cellStyle.setFillForegroundColor(HSSFColor.GOLD.index);

			cellA1.setCellStyle(cellStyle);

			HSSFCell cellB1 = row1.createCell((short) 1);
			cellB1.setCellValue(men.getValue());
			cellStyle = workbook.createCellStyle();
			cellStyle.setFillForegroundColor(HSSFColor.LIGHT_CORNFLOWER_BLUE.index);
