Below is the code that i am using and getting an error as” This method must return a result of type string[][]”.

public static String[][] readXL(String fPath, String fSheet) throws Exception{
String[][] xData;

File myxl = new File(fPath);
FileInputStream myStream = new FileInputStream(myxl);
HSSFWorkbook myWB = new HSSFWorkbook(myStream);
HSSFSheet mySheet = myWB.getSheet(fSheet);
System.out.println(“Total rows:”+xRows);
System.out.println(“Total columns:”+xCols);

xData= new String[xRows][xCols];
for (int i=0; i < xRows; i++) {
HSSFRow row=mySheet.getRow(i);
for (int j=0; j<xCols; j++){
HSSFCell cell= row.getCell(j);
String value = "-";
value = cellToString(cell);

return xData;

Use this working code

public static String[][] readXL(String sPath, String iSheet) throws Exception{
String[][] xData;

File myxl = new File(sPath);
FileInputStream myStream = new FileInputStream(myxl);
HSSFWorkbook myWB = new HSSFWorkbook(myStream);
HSSFSheet mySheet = myWB.getSheet(iSheet);
xRows = mySheet.getLastRowNum()+1;
xCols = mySheet.getRow(0).getLastCellNum();
xData = new String[xRows][xCols];
for (int i = 0; i < xRows; i++) {
HSSFRow row = mySheet.getRow(i);
for (int j = 0; j < xCols; j++) {
HSSFCell cell = row.getCell(j);
String value = cellToString(cell);
xData[i][j] = value;
return xData;
