public class SumFormulaTest2 {

  /**

   @throws IOException 
   @throws WriteException 
   @throws BiffException

  public static void main(String[] argsthrows IOException, WriteException {
    //Creates a writable workbook with the given file name
    WritableWorkbook workbook = Workbook.createWorkbook(new File("C:/JXL/SumFormula2.xls"));

    WritableSheet sheet = workbook.createSheet("My Sheet"0);

    Number numCell = new Number(1010);
    sheet.addCell(numCell);

    Number numCell2 = new Number(1120);
    sheet.addCell(numCell2);
    
    Number numCell3 = new Number(1230);
    sheet.addCell(numCell3);
    
    Number numCell4 = new Number(1340);
    sheet.addCell(numCell4);
    
    //Create a formula for adding cells
    Formula sum = new Formula(14"SUM(b1:b4)");
    sheet.addCell(sum);
    
    //Create label for sum
    Label sumLabel = new Label(04"SUM(b1:b4)");
    sheet.addCell(sumLabel);
    
    //Writes out the data held in this workbook in Excel format
    workbook.write()

    //Close and free allocated memory 
    workbook.close()
  }
