How to insert into database reading from excel sheet using java POI ?

Hi,

I'm reading the value from excel sheet using java POI and need to insert into database.I have string,numeric and date values from excel sheet as well as first fields are column header.

public class SimpleExcelReadExample {
	static Connection con1 = null;
	static Connection con3 = null;
	static PreparedStatement preparedstatement = null;
	static ResultSet resultset = null;
	int j = 0;

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		
		String fileName = "D:/Excel/Report.xls";
		Cleartables.table_daily_report();
		Vector dataHolder = read(fileName);
		saveToDatabase(dataHolder);
	}

	public static Vector read(String fileName) {
		Vector cellVectorHolder = new Vector();
		try {
			FileInputStream myInput = new FileInputStream(fileName);
			POIFSFileSystem myFileSystem = new POIFSFileSystem(myInput);
			HSSFWorkbook myWorkBook = new HSSFWorkbook(myFileSystem);
			HSSFSheet mySheet = myWorkBook.getSheetAt(0);
			Iterator rowIter = mySheet.rowIterator();
			while (rowIter.hasNext()) {
				HSSFRow myRow = (HSSFRow) rowIter.next();
				Iterator cellIter = myRow.cellIterator();
				Vector cellStoreVector = new Vector();
				while (cellIter.hasNext()) {
					HSSFCell myCell = (HSSFCell) cellIter.next();
					//System.out.println("read method"+myCell);
					cellStoreVector.addElement(myCell);
				}
				cellVectorHolder.addElement(cellStoreVector);
			}
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
		return cellVectorHolder;
	}

	private static void saveToDatabase(Vector dataHolder)
	{
		
                       for (int i=0;i<dataHolder.size(); i++)
                        {
                           Vector cellStoreVector=(Vector)dataHolder.get(i);
                           issueid = ((HSSFCell)cellStoreVector.get(0)).toString();
                               System.out.println(issueid);
                        }

Thanks for reply.

See the below code for retrive the value from excel sheet one by one.I have column header and values like database.But here there is no option to retrive value as header.
So what happening is getting all the values from excel sheet including header.But already header in data table.

How to avoid header while reading the excel sheet ?

private static void saveToDatabase(Vector dataHolder)
      {
           
                       for (int i=0;i<dataHolder.size(); i++)
                        {
                           Vector cellStoreVector=(Vector)dataHolder.get(i);
                           issueid = ((HSSFCell)cellStoreVector.get(0)).toString();
                               System.out.println(issueid);
                        }

So what happening is getting all the values from excel sheet including header
If that's the case, then only the first row is a header, so why don't you simply ignore the first row?

Above program is reading the value as columwise but i want to read rowwise ..So that i can insert the values into database one by one.

Please find the below code...Values are not inserting into database.Can you please advise.

private static void saveToDatabase(Vector dataHolder)
	{
		try
        {
		String field1= "";
		String field2= "";
		String field3= "";
		String field4= "";
		String field5= "";

		String field7= "";
		String field8= "";
		String field9= "";

		String field11= "";
		String field12= "";
		String field13= "";
		String field14= "";
                        for (int i=1;i<dataHolder.size(); i++)
                        {
                           Vector cellStoreVector=(Vector)dataHolder.get(i);
                           field1= ((HSSFCell)cellStoreVector.get(0)).toString();
                           field2=((HSSFCell)cellStoreVector.get(1)).toString();
                           field3=((HSSFCell)cellStoreVector.get(2)).toString();

Nothing wrong with that, although of course you can get rid of that massive amount of code and replace with a few lines in a loop. Make sure you close the Statement and Connection or the insert won't 'stick'

Please see the below code.

private void printToConsole(List cellDataList) {
    for (int i = 1; i < cellDataList.size(); i++) {
        List cellTempList = (List) cellDataList.get(i);
        System.out.println(cellTempList);
    }
}

How to get the data to insert into database from above code.

String sql2 = "INSERT INTO Daily_Report (field1,field2,field3,field4,field5,field6,field7,field8,field9,field10,field11,field12,field13,field14) values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)";
                        preparedstatement = con3.prepareStatement(sql2);
                        //Statement stmt = con3.createStatement();
                        System.out.println("1");
                        preparedstatement.setString(1, field1);
                        preparedstatement.setString(2, field2);
                        preparedstatement.setString(3, field3);
                        preparedstatement.setString(4, field4);
                        preparedstatement.setString(5, field5);
                        preparedstatement.setString(6, field6);
                        preparedstatement.setString(7, field7);
                        preparedstatement.setString(8, field8);
                        preparedstatement.setString(9, field9);
                        preparedstatement.setString(10, field10);
                        preparedstatement.setString(11, field11);
                        preparedstatement.setString(12, field12);
                        preparedstatement.setString(13, field13);
                        preparedstatement.setString(14, field14);
