I am trying to generate a file with php from a database extract that i would like to be open in excel.
What i need is to format the content of the file in CSV i guess. The 'fgetcsv()' can do the job by formating the content of an existing file.
Is there an other option than to create a file with my database content, save it on the server and open/format it with 'fgetcsv()'?

It works fine, But when i run it, it always shows the message from Microsoft Excel: A file named ''' already exists in this location. Do you want to replace it? I can choose between Yes No and Cancel. normally i would choose Yes. But i dont want users to click on Yes each time. Can i disable this?

I am using spreadsheet_excel_writer(9.2) to download an excel file from a mysql (4.1.22) database. I have done this successfully on the same server, and this code is very similar, but on this occasion it isn't working. I get an excel file that has the data in it but all in one cell with all sorts of characters intermingled.
// Create workbook
$workbook =& new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();
// sending HTTP headers
// Create worksheet
$worksheet =& $workbook->addWorksheet('Registration Worksheet');
We have a web application written in PHP that exports MySQL query results to an Excel file using PEAR Spreadsheet Excel Writer. I'm initiating the download via the following headers:
header( "Content-Type: application/vnd.ms-excel" );
header( "Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary" );
header( "Cache-Control: must-revalidate" );
header( "Pragma: no-cache" );
header( "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=myfile.xls" );
As far as I can tell all of this works correctly. All users have Excel 97 and 2000. Problem is when the browser (exclusively IE7/8) prompts to save, "Save as type" defaults to Excel 95, and there are apparently some compatibility issues if the file is saved in that format. These are not technical users so asking them to change the filetype is hit or miss.
I told my client I can't control what the OS/browser does with the file when downloaded, but I'm hoping for confirmation of that. I also wonder if there's a possibility Excel 95 was upgraded and left some of its tentacles, so Windows still thinks it's a viable option.
Can somebody send me PHP code which will read an excel file and write the data of that excel file into database. It should also read multiple tabs of that excel file and perform the same operation.View 4 Replies View Related
I have been tasked to create a website for a company. They are wanting a content management system, where they can upload a document and the contents will be displayed. I have experimented with file_get_contents() and got this working. But What they are wanting is to be able to upload excel files and keep the formatting of the excel file. Is this possible. I have loooked into COMS but i am not sure if this is right, as i dont want to download a file i want to display it.View 3 Replies View Related

I am making a wordpress plugin that collects information from the user and then presents it in an admin screen in a table. I would like to also be able to download this table to excel. I know how to do a basic download to excel file in PHP with this code:
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="$filename"");
which then converts all of the page output to an excel file.
But in this case, I need to also be able to use wordpress functions like get_option(), which I can't use in just a straight called php file. But if I make it a wordpress admin page, the admin skin gets included in my file.
Anyone know how to do an excel download from the wordpress admin screen that includes info from wordpress functions like get_option?
I have this script and it says on line 10 (in red) that the function.open does not allow the script to open and edit my file.DIT: This is my errorWarning: fopen(uploads/index.html) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/a9133340/public_html/admin/edit.php on line 10edit.php:
// set file to read
I have the following script to create an excel file, the thing is that I dont want to be asked if I want to open or save the file when accessing the php file...I just want the php file directly to save the excel file.
$filename = "test.xls";
$contents = "testdata1
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.$filename);
Is there a way instead of using the header function, use something like: fopen, fwrite, fclose ?
I am trying to read an excel file that has been saved as a Comma Separated Values file. When I open the file with a text editor each line consists of that which was on the respective row in the original Excel file. However, when I read the file using PHP each "line" has far more values than was in each row; PLUS I have no idea what PHP is using to decide where these lines start and end! This is probably causing some of my document to be cut out as well.I am lost please help, perhaps I don't understand what PHP means by a "line." My code is below. I am starting at 10 so that the first row will be skipped, as there are 10 columns in the document.

I have two scripts, neither of which have been written, that will need to collect user information. They will either write to a flat file or to a MySQL DB, and I need a way for an administrator to grab an Excel file based on this data.
First, no more than 100 people are expected to sign up, so flat file is certainly viable. Do you recommend I use DB or flat file?
Second, based on your recommendation, how should I go about exporting the user data to an Excel file? There will be about ten form fields per registration to give you an idea.
i'am trying to accomplish is open each file with a wildcard name and only file type known. So saying for exp ( " *.php") so i have used the glob() to accomplish the first part of matching file patterns. This send all files into an array witch is fine untill i would like to open all those files one by one.
foreach( glob("*.php") as $file) //match file types
fread and so on
my question is really how can i open the files that are in the return values of glob() witch is an array.
I have uploaded files to mysql (doc and xls) using the tutorial. The problem comes when I try to download. Again I followed instructions in the tutorial. When I click on the link to download the file, it formats it as text and sends it to the browser instead of seeing it as binary and offering me a download box. PHP Code:
$id = $_GET['id'];
$query = "SELECT name, type, size, content FROM upload WHERE id = '$id'";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');
list($name, $type, $size, $content) = mysql_fetch_array($result);
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$name");
header("Content-length: $size"); ....
I am trying to write a file to a sub folder of the directory my cron script is in using file_ put_ contents. However, I keep getting a warning "failed to open stream: No such file or directory." I have this directory structure:
The cron script lives in the scripts folder. I call it with the cron command:
In the cron_writeFile file, I first tried:
file_put_contents('fileDirectory/', $fileName, $fileContents);
which works when I load the page in a browser, but not when the cron executes. When I require_once a file in a cron, I have to put the 'absolute' path to it:
So, I tried that:
file_put_contents('httpdocs/scripts/fileDirectory/', $fileName, $fileContents);
No luck. I'm pretty sure it's getting to the right folder because the warning is:
"Warning: file_ put_ contents(httpdocs/scripts/fileDirectory/4.txt): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [code]...
The both directories have write permissions.I am using a VPS running (I know it sucks and I need to upgrade, but I don't have the authority)Parallels Plesk Panel version 9.2.1 with PHP 5.0.4
The file does not exist and I need a new file each time the script runs.I am not sure if there is a certain way to define the file path or some other thing I am missing.

Ive created a script that generates a csv file on the webserver, whereafter the user can download it, in order to open it in Excel. Excel gives the following error:
1) cannot read record 1
2) File myfile.csv is not a valid SYLK format.
I really don't know whats wrong. The first 3 rows look like this of the csv file look like this:
1303;Café Blue moon;Leeds;LTP1;year;01-08-1999;1;0.00;358.80;200308-200507
Anyone a clue why Excel doesnt want to read this? (It won't even read the 3 lines only, after deleting the other rows)
This code exports data from my DB into an Excel file by using " " as the delimiter. It runs through the script over and over until it's done creating an Excel file with columns of data, but is there a way that I can add a value to the beginning of the script - thereby naming the columns?

I have a hyperlink to an Excel spreadsheet but I'm having a bit of trouble with it. My first problem was that IE6 integrates Excel into the IE window when you click an Excel link. I overcame that by having a dummy Excel file run that had VBA code to launch the real application in a new window. That's probably too much info, but there it is.
Moving on. My problem is the users will be opening up this VBA Excel application of mine from our Intranet. When they click on the link, the dummy Excel file runs, that in turn launches the real application and all is well and good. Except for one thing. When the user is done or goes back to the IE Intranet window where they launched the application, this is the error that is displayed:
The page cannot be displayed: The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.
My two solutions were to either have the link do two things simulatenously. You would click on the app link and it would run the application and it would also reload the Intranet home page. My second solution was to have them click the link and then it would go back to the previous page they were on all in the same click procedure/event/whatever. Code:
When I upload an excel file, PHP does not recognize the type of this
echo $HTTP_POST_FILES['file']['type'] ;
Whereas a word file returns: application/msword
Do you know if there is anyway to get the type of a excel file ?
A while back I had written a script for a client who had wanted to upload an excel file for his clients that contained their inventory information. I had it set so everytime he would upload the file it would check the information in the file against that already stored in the db.
If a row in the db contained a certain field like an account number. It would make any changes that were made to that field or if none were made it would leave it be. If there were any new rows in the file it would upload those. Code:
I have set up a pretty neat php page which basically emails me what members have logged in over the past month... using a cron job i run this script every month, and get emailed results for the previous month... NOW the tricky part in this email i also want to have an excel file attached with that data... i can make the excel page separately but aren't sure how to get it all happening together... anyone know if it can be done?View 47 Replies View Related
I've got a script which outputs an excel file, with the information being pulled from a mysql database. However, even though all of the information is echoed successfully, it's all very plain. Does anyone know any tags I could use to format the file? I tried putting <b> tags around my text, but that didn't seem to work.
Anyone have an idea?
I have an excel file I need to import into a table. The description field has commas that need to be in there. ex. man,bites,dog. What is the best way to save and import this file? I thought about changing all of the commas in the name to something else, importing it as a CSV file then using an ALTER TABLE command to put the commas back but I'm not sure of the syntax.View 4 Replies View Related
I want to upload an excel file and read its contents I'm running apache2 on fedora, with PHP 4.

I have an excel spreadsheet that I would like to upload to my webspace. Is there anyway that php can take the file that was uploaded and then have it viewed on site? Would the only possibly way be to upload the file into the db and then have it return all the results? Would there be anyway to open the file to display it's contents as well? Just a couple options I thought of and I'm not sure if any of them would work.View 5 Replies View Related

I'm trying to read an Excel file (Office 2003). There is an Excel file that needs to be uploaded and its contents parsed.
Via Google, I can only find answers to these related (and insufficient topics): generating Excel files, reading Excel XML files, reading Excel CSV files, or incomplete abandoned projects. I own Office 2003 so if I need any files from there, they are available. It's installed on my box but isn't and can't be installed on my shared host.
Edit: so far all answers point to PHP-ExcelReader and/or this additional article about how to use it.
