Post Passing dates to EasyXLS
Hi!

I wanted to pass a date to Excel using EasyXLS. I used the following code:

Code:
Calendar c1 = Calendar.getInstance();
c1.setTime(date1);
int d1 = c1.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
int m1 = c1.get(Calendar.MONTH);
int y1 = c1.get(Calendar.YEAR);
            
xlsTable.easy_getCell(2,0).setValue("" + y1);
xlsTable.easy_getCell(2,1).setValue("" + m1);
xlsTable.easy_getCell(2,2).setValue("" + d1);


I then put the following formula in an excel cell
=DATE(A3,B3,C3)

Is there a better method?

If you want to keep the calendar, here is a sample. You need to set also the cell data type:
-------------------------
Calendar c1 = Calendar.getInstance();
c1.setTime(date1);
int d1 = c1.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
int m1 = c1.get(Calendar.MONTH)+1;
int y1 = c1.get(Calendar.YEAR);

xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setValue(m1+"/"+d1+"/"+y1);
xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setDataType(DataType.DATE);
---------------------------

Another possible solution is to use the SimpleDateFormat for formatting your date:
---------------------------
java.text.SimpleDateFormat sdf = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setValue(sdf.format(date1));
xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setDataType(DataType.DATE);
---------------------------

The best solution is to store the entire date (also the hours, minutes and seconds) and apply a date format for the cell:
---------------------------
java.text.SimpleDateFormat sdf = new java.text.SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss");
xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setValue(sdf.format(date1));
xlsTable.easy_getCell("A3").setFormat("MM/dd/yyyy");
---------------------------
