Hi Experts,
I am trying to set date with specified format.when i open excel clicking on the generated value r.click on format cell i could see it as custom date.
excel under formatcells we have date with this speicified format(dd-MMM-yyyy).

Below is the example i have tried:

HSSFCellStyle cellStyle = workbook.createCellStyle();
   HSSFCreationHelper creationHelper = workbook.getCreationHelper();
   cellStyle.setDataFormat(creationHelper.createDataFormat().getFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy"));
   cell.setCellStyle(cellStyle);
