public class QueryListExcelView extends AbstractXlsxView {
	private static Logger log= Logger.getLogger(QueryListExcelView.class);

	protected void buildExcelDocument(Map<String, Object> model, Workbook workbook, HttpServletRequest request,
			HttpServletResponse response) throws Exception {
		response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\"queryTracking.xlsx\"");

		List<Discom> AdminPanel = (List<Discom>) model.get("AdminPanel");
		 Sheet sheet = workbook.createSheet("QueryTracking Report");
		 Row header = sheet.createRow(0);
		 header.createCell(1).setCellValue("Name of the State");

Where is the line referred to in the error message: ?
Member 14639038 27-Jan-21 5:59am
for(Discom records:AdminPanel) // this is the line refering to line 46
Richard MacCutchan 27-Jan-21 6:17am
The message is telling you that AdminPanel is not a collection of com.rec.model.Discom objects. Which seems a bit odd considering how you get the list in the first place.
Member 14639038 27-Jan-21 6:25am
can you help me in this . please suggest another solution
Richard MacCutchan 27-Jan-21 6:49am
Sorry, I don't have a solution. You will need to do some debugging to find out what actual values the AdminPanel object contains.
Member 14639038 27-Jan-21 6:53am
it contains null
Richard MacCutchan 27-Jan-21 6:55am
Well there is your answer; the call to model.get("AdminPanel") is not returning a List as you expect.
Member 14639038 27-Jan-21 7:03am
how to get a collection of com.rec.model.Discom??????????
Richard MacCutchan 27-Jan-21 7:28am
Sorry, I have no idea what your code is supposed to do. You need to use the debugger to find out why it is going wrong. If this is not code that you wrote, but something you copied from the internet, then you need to ask the person who wrote it.

i wanna ask you that will i need databaase to export jsp data to excel
Richard MacCutchan 28-Jan-21 4:31am
Sorry I do not know. But as I already said, you need to find out why the model.get("AdminPanel") is not returning a List. Once you have fixed that then it may well do what you are expecting.
Member 14639038 27-Jan-21 7:05am
