This tool was designed to interface a row entry in a spreadsheet program like Excel or else. The requirement was to simplify the process of generating a price list for an exhibition. The end-user had to enter many rows in a tabular format including images. The user then had to go through the hassle of re-sizing and aligning the images within the rows.
The tool simplifies the process by allowing a form entries to be converted into a table row on exporting the whole meta files from CSV to XLS. Hence, the end-user only worries about the data entry and the tool does the alignment and re-sizing automatically.
The tool was written in Java to work to operate cross platforms and Apache POI Project was used to handle XLS files.
