Here is another sample based on this java excel library:

List<integer> data = new ArrayList<integer>();
// ...


ExcelFile workbook = ExcelFile.load("input.xlsx");
ExcelWorksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheet(0);
ExcelColumn column = worksheet.getColumn("F");

for (int i = 0; i < data.size(); i++) {
Integer value = data.get(i);

Here is a sample based on apache POI.
public void fillData(int[] intArr)
    int startCell = 6;     // Corrosponds to F
    HSSFWorkbook workbook = null;
    HSSFSheet sheet = null;
    HSSFCell cell = null;
    HSSFRow sheetRow = null;

    workbook = new HSSFWorkbook();
    sheet = workbook.createSheet("WorkSheet");
    sheetRow = getRow(sheet, 0);
    for (int val : intArr)
        cell = sheetRow.createCell(startCell);
        cell.setCellValue(((Integer) value).doubleValue());

 * Helper method to retrieve the numbered row. If row does not exists then
 * a new row is inserted and it's reference is returned.
 * @param sheet The worksheet from which a row reference is sought.
 * @param rowNum the row number
 * @return the reference to the numbered row.
protected final HSSFRow getRow(HSSFSheet sheet, int rowNum)
    HSSFRow sheetRow = null ;

    sheetRow = sheet.getRow(rowNum);
    if (null == sheetRow)
        sheetRow = sheet.createRow(rowNum);

    return sheetRow;

@PrasadKhandekar Your code is for create a new excel right? I have the excel file before to export to JTable. I want to add the data from my arraylist to the next column, start from F

The code for adding values should remain same. Please check the Apache POI documentation for reading existing excel part.
