RangeByName iteration fails on empty/null cells in excel

Hi,

We have an excel sheet having cells with userdefined names. We are using RangeByName along with the iterator to activate/set the values in these cells. This is working perfectly fine when we are trying to retrieve cells having values(even blanks).

But, when we try to access a empty cell using its defined name, we are facing a null pointer exception.

I have attached a sample code where we have recreated this issue.Can you please let us know the solution for this or if there is any other way to do this ?

Do let us know if you need any additional information

Hi,


Well, yes, you cannot implement iterator for the empty named range, the cells would not be initialized. I think you may try the following sample code instead:
e.g
Sample code:

for(int i = r1.getFirstRow(); i<r1.getRowCount(); i++)
{
for(int j = r1.getFirstColumn(); j<r1.getColumnCount(); j++)
{
cell1 = r1.getWorksheet().getCells().get(i,j);
System.out.println(cell1.getName());


}
}

Hope, this helps a bit.

Thank you.
