Probable Steps :
1. Read the text file
2. Read the old_excel file using POI api.
3. On the basis of text file create an new_excel instance using POI
4. before writing it i.e at the time of creation compare it with old_excel file
5. do the necessary update i.e. row color/column color change on the POI instance
6. finally write it.
