    Default How to write code for writing fields into word documents using POI

    Hello All,

    I tried

    package com.hcl;
    import java.io.*;

    import org.apache.poi.hwpf.HWPFDocument;
    import org.apache.poi.hwpf.usermodel.*;
    import org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.*;

    public class WordDocCreation {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
    File file = new File("E:\\kalpana\\test1.doc");

    POIFSFileSystem fs = new POIFSFileSystem(new FileInputStream(file));
    HWPFDocument doc =new HWPFDocument(fs);

    Range range = doc.getRange();

    CharacterRun run = range.insertBefore("1. Hello World!!! It works well!!!");
    OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("sample2.doc");

    But it gives an error as

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.poi.poifs.filesystem.POIFSFileSystem.ge tRoot()Lorg/apache/poi/poifs/filesystem/DirectoryNode;
    at org.apache.poi.hwpf.HWPFDocument.<init>(HWPFDocume nt.java:146)
    at com.hcl.WordDocCreation.main(WordDocCreation.java: 15)

    I'm moving this thread. Please read this: http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...e-posting.html

    Also, please use the highlight tags when posting code.

    Does the method you're trying to use actually exist? Are you sure? Check the parameters, capitalization, everything.
