In this chapter you will learn how to create a Paragraph and how to add it to a document using Java. Paragraph is a part of a page in a Word file.

After completing this chapter, you will be able to create a Paragraph and perform read operations on it.

## Create a Paragraph

First of all, let us create a Paragraph using the referenced classes discussed in the earlier chapters. By following the previous chapter, create a Document first, and then we can create a Paragraph.

The following code snippet is used to create a spreadsheet −

//Create Blank document   XWPFDocument document = new XWPFDocument(); //Create a blank spreadsheet   XWPFParagraph paragraph = document.createParagraph();
## Run on Paragraph

You can enter the text or any object element, using Run. Using Paragraph instance you can create run.

The following code snippet is used to create a Run.

XWPFRun run = paragraph.createRun();
## Write into a Paragraph

Let us try entering some text into a document. Consider the below text data −

At tutorialspoint.com, we strive hard to provide quality tutorials for self-learningpurpose in the domains of Academics, Information Technology, Management and ComputerProgramming Languages.

The following code is used to write the above data into a paragraph.

import java.io.File;import java.io.FileOutputStream;import org.apache.poi.xwpf.usermodel.XWPFDocument;import org.apache.poi.xwpf.usermodel.XWPFParagraph;import org.apache.poi.xwpf.usermodel.XWPFRun; public class CreateParagraph {    public static void main(String[] args)throws Exception {       //Blank Document      XWPFDocument document = new XWPFDocument();        //Write the Document in file system      FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(new File(“createparagraph.docx”));       //create Paragraph      XWPFParagraph paragraph = document.createParagraph();      XWPFRun run = paragraph.createRun();      run.setText(“At tutorialspoint.com, we strive hard to “ +         “provide quality tutorials for self-learning “ +         “purpose in the domains of Academics, Information “ +         “Technology, Management and Computer Programming         Languages.”);       document.write(out);      out.close();      System.out.println(“createparagraph.docx written successfully”);   }}

Save the above Java code as CreateParagraph.java, and then compile and run it from the command prompt as follows −

$javac CreateParagraph.java$java CreateParagraph

It will compile and execute to generate a Word file named createparagraph.docx in your current directory and you will get the following output in the command prompt −

createparagraph.docx written successfully

The createparagraph.docx file looks as follows.
