POI read cell value as string

When you get error for reading cell value as string:

Cannot get a numeric value from a text cell
or Cannot get a boolean value from a text cell

The code below will format the cell properly and return string value:

final DataFormatter df = new DataFormatter();
final XSSFCell cell = row.getCell(cellIndex);
String valueAsString = df.formatCellValue(cell);
