    public void readODS(File file)
    Sheet sheet;
    //Getting the 0th sheet for manipulation| pass sheet name as string
    sheet = SpreadSheet.createFromFile(file).getSheet(0);

    //Get row count and column count
    int nColCount = sheet.getColumnCount();
    int nRowCount = sheet.getRowCount();

    System.out.println("Rows :"+nRowCount);
    System.out.println("Cols :"+nColCount);
    //Iterating through each row of the selected sheet
    MutableCell cell = null;
    for(int nRowIndex = 0; nRowIndex < nRowCount; nRowIndex++)
    //Iterating through each column
    int nColIndex = 0;
    for( ;nColIndex < nColCount; nColIndex++)
    cell = sheet.getCellAt(nColIndex, nRowIndex);
    System.out.print(cell.getValue()+ " ");
