That link hints that you can use net.sf.jasperreports.export.xls.sheet.name to obtain that, but does not really explain how.

A little trial&error testing in Jasper Studio 6.4.0.final using a simple report with column header and detail band, revealed that JS was very picky about where to place it. I could only get it to work if I placed it inside a reportElement:

        <band height="14" splitType="Stretch">
                <reportElement x="0" y="0" width="70" height="14" uuid="e0777908-52d5-4c52-8fb3-fcb3c31633bb">
                    <property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.y" value="pixel"/>
                    <property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.height" value="pixel"/>
                    <propertyExpression name="net.sf.jasperreports.export.xls.sheet.name"><![CDATA[$V{SheetDetail}]]></propertyExpression>
                <reportElement x="70" y="0" width="85" height="14" uuid="b0d57d3b-0c00-4eb2-a106-d845732c8015"/>

$V{SheetDetail} is just a variable I created to hold the name of the sheet. It could also be a field. 

Furthermore, it did not matter in which field i placed the "sheet name", so I just placed it in the first field.
