    Unhappy Save results in an excel file

    I have a large simulation and I would like to save my results in an excel file.

    I have a main class and a class where there are the results, and I ama able to print them, but I can't save them in a file.
    How can I do it? Where do I have to put the parts here...? I can create a file with only the last parameters printed now...

    Thanks for your help, sorry for the silly question.

    This is the code for excel:

    import java.io.*;
    import java.io.FileNotFoundException.*;
    import java.util.Date;
    import jxl.*;
    import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet;
    import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook;
    import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRow;
    import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFCell;
    import java.util.Arrays.*;

    public class CreateExcelFile {
    public static void main(String[]args){


    String filename="...Results.xls" ;
    HSSFWorkbook wb=new HSSFWorkbook();
    HSSFSheet sheet = wb.createSheet("BTObserver");
    HSSFRow row;
    HSSFCell cell;

    for (short rowIndex = 0; rowIndex < 1000; rowIndex++) {

    row.createCell(1).setCellValue(((BitTorrent)(Netwo rk.get(i).getProtocol(pid))).getThisNodeID());
    row.createCell(2).setCellValue("(" + peerStatus + ")");
    row.createCell(3).setCellValue(numberOfCompletedPi eces);
    row.createCell(4).setCellValue(((BitTorrent)(Netwo rk.get(i).getProtocol(pid))).nPiecesDown);
    row.createCell(5).setCellValue(((BitTorrent)(Netwo rk.get(i).getProtocol(pid))).nPiecesUp);
    row.createCell(6).setCellValue(CommonState.getTime ());


    FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream(filename);
    System.out.println("Your excel file has been generated!");
    }catch(Exception ex){
