I am reading and writing excel sheet with jdbc -odbc .
But i am not getting excel sheets name and how many sheets in any
excel file .
I don't want to use third party tool such as apache or jxl .
please give suggestion .
I think you can find them via Connection.getMetaData(). There's a call in the metadata block which lists tables - tables approximately corespond to sheets in a workbook (I think there's a $ prepended to the names).
