Android studio :open failed: ENOENT (No such file or directory) error

I have this method. The problem is that in Android studio the excel path doesn’t exist, but if I use the code in IntelliJ it works perfectly fine. Please help me to understand this issue.
I have this in manifest too:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"
    tools:ignore="ScopedStorage" />
   private static String findRow(String cellContent) throws IOException {
        String excelPath="C:\\Users\\mely\\AndroidStudioProjects\\exportingfile.xlsx";
        FileInputStream inputStream=new FileInputStream(excelPath);
        XSSFWorkbook workbook=new XSSFWorkbook(inputStream);
        XSSFSheet sheet=workbook.getSheetAt(0);
        for (Row row : sheet) {
            for (Cell cell : row) {
                if (cell.getRichStringCellValue().getString().trim().equals(cellContent)) {
                    return sheet.getRow(row.getRowNum()).getCell(9).toString();

        return "";
    } ```

>Solution :


C: is a partition on a hard disk on a Windows PC.

It is not a valid storage path on an Android device.

Your app on an Android device has no access to files on a Windows PC.

Not to your PC, not to mines.
