IF statement is not working for me


Recommended Posts


 		String msg =row.getCell(5).toString();
	    System.out.println("msg " + msg);
    	 if (shouldLoginNo.trim() == "Yes"){
	       System.out.println("msg " + msg);

Its not printing the IF message. 

msg is coming from excel spreadsheet. It is getting the value "Yes" just fine. I added trim method but it is still not printing IF message. 

If I hard code value like this and it works. It tells me something is wrong when it reads value from excel. 

			        shouldLoginNo = "Yes";

How can I print the msg inside the IF block? Thanks!

I am doing selenium web driver testing and to read data from excel, I am using apache POI. 

Again reading data from excel, I have no problem. When it compares in the IF statement, I have problem. 

import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFCell;
import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFRow;
import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFSheet;
import org.apache.poi.hssf.usermodel.HSSFWorkbook;
import org.apache.poi.ss.usermodel.Cell;
File file =    new File("C://Tek_AllSites.xls");
// Open the Excel file
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(file);
// Access the required test data sheet
HSSFWorkbook wb = new HSSFWorkbook(fis);
HSSFSheet sheet = wb.getSheet("AllSites");
int TotalRow;
int TotalCol;
String pageTitle = "";
TotalRow = sheet.getLastRowNum();
System.out.println("Total row " + TotalRow);
TotalCol = sheet.getRow(0).getLastCellNum();
HSSFRow headerRow = sheet.getRow(0);
String result = "";
for(int count = 1;count<=TotalRow;count++){
    HSSFRow row = sheet.getRow(count);
	String shouldLoginNo =row.getCell(5).toString();
    System.out.println("pageTitle " + pageTitle);
	System.out.println("*" + shouldLoginNo + "*"); // Printig Yes just fine
	if (shouldLoginNo.trim() == "Yes"){
	    System.out.println("*" + shouldLoginNo + "*");  // Not printing here
