I am a new member, and this is my first post so please bear with me. I am trying to import the jxl package into Netbeans so that I can read excel files in java, but I am getting an error.
Things I have done:
I have downloaded the jexcel files, which consist of a jxl-core.jar file and a jxl-reader.jar file.
I have saved these files into the same folder as the package I am trying to use.
In NetBeans, I went to package>properties>library and added the two jar files to the classpath.
Finally, I tried to import the package by using "import jxl-reader.*;" and "import jxl-core.*;"
but I am getting an error that sometimes says "missing '.'" I am assuming this has to do with the file not existing, because a minute ago it was giving me a "package jxl-core does not exist" error.
I do not know how to use command line, and I also do not know how to use apache or deal with the .xml file.
Can someone please help? I would really appreciate it, and am willing to learn how to use apache or the command line if necessary.
thanks in advance,
