This is what I have tried

public class User


    static HSSFWorkbook hwb=new HSSFWorkbook();

    static HSSFSheet sheet = hwb.createSheet("new sheet");

    static HSSFRow rowhead= sheet.createRow((short)0);

    static HSSFRow row= sheet.createRow((short)1);

    static int count=1;

    public static void main(String[]args)



            rowhead.createCell((short) 0).setCellValue("SNo");

            rowhead.createCell((short) 1).setCellValue("USER NAME");

            BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new FileReader("filter.log"));

            String str=null;

            String user=null;





                    user=str.substring(48,75);   // This is to get user names





            FileOutputStream fileOut = new FileOutputStream("D:/Excel.xls");



            System.out.println("Your excel file has been generated!");


        catch ( Exception ex )

        { System.out.println(ex);



    private static void store(String user,int count)


        row.createCell((short) 0).setCellValue(count);

        row.createCell((short) 1).setCellValue(user);

in this whenever I execute this program only first value is getting stored rather all values stores.. and I want to store only UNIQUE user names in this Excel sheet..

please help me , thanks in advance


  • For Unique Names you can Use ArrayList<String> add whenever new UserName appears add and before that check whether user exist in arrayList or not (by the Use of contains("UName")) and than proceed.
  • Use String username=line.substring(line.lastindexOf(":")).trim(); or You can use line.split(":")[1].trim();

For Excel row creation you can use loop.

int i=0;
row = sheet.createRow((short) i);
cell = row.createCell(i);
cell.setCellValue("UserName");//Set UserName after getting it from 'str'

First off, I am not an expert and have never tried this myself nor can I at the moment. From looking at your code I can spot a few design flaws that might be the reason for your problem.

You only ever declare one row:

static HSSFRow row= sheet.createRow((short)1);

This means that in your store method, the same row's cells will be written again and again. What you are missing is the logic to create a new row if a unique name is encountered. For this task, may I suggest using a Set preferably one operating on hashes for the benefit of low lookup time, and storing all unique names in there? That way you can use a simply contains query.

Furthermore, your countvariable is off and starts counting at 2, not at one. Initialise it to 0 or increment it after its use.

Some pseudocode:

private HashSet<String> names = new HashSet<>();
// More fields here.

// Now start in your if clause:
if(str.contains("FLTR" && !names.contains(str.substring(48))
    store(user, count);

// More of your code.

private static void store(String user, int count)
    // Create new row
    HSSFRow row = sheet.createRow((short)rowCount);

    row.createCell((short) 0).setCellValue(count);
    row.createCell((short) 1).setCellValue(user);
