There was talk lately about handling XLS files using ColdFusion and POI and it made me remember that i've done something on it back in 2004 when POI was not part of CF yet. As well as i remember, i was inspired by Busy Developers' Guide to HSSF Features and Dave Ross's article. Thought it may help someone, so i am going to upload it to RIAForge soon. Stay tuned.
