    Question Java program help

    Hi guys,

    I want to make a Java program based on an Excel file. I want that when I select a name on the program, I want it to look for it on the Excel and say me the values about it.

    Example: If I select Paul (for example), the program must say to me his age, his birth date and his adress (this information is on the Excel file).

    Can someone help me with this?

    Thank you!!

    What if there's more than one Paul?

    Reading data from a file in response to every user's query is not efficient and it gives the user no ability to change the data once read. I suggest you read the Excel file (a CSV file) completely and store it in instances of a class, say a Person class, that has the methods needed to locate and manipulate the data as needed. When done, write the data back to the file, ready for the next use.
