How To Format Data In A File Which Will Be Open In Excel?

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()'?

Spreadsheet Excel Writer 9.2 - Download An Excel File From A Mysql (4.1.22) Database

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.

require_once "/home/cloudare/php/Spreadsheet/Excel/Writer.php";
// Create workbook
$workbook =& new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();
// sending HTTP headers
// Create worksheet
$worksheet =& $workbook->addWorksheet('Registration Worksheet');

Browser Opening Downloaded Excel File In Wrong Version Of Excel?

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/" );
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.

Wordpress Excel Download From Plugin / Basic Download To Excel File In?

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"");
header("Content-Type: application/");

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?

Exporting Excel: Instead Of Open / Save - Directly Create And Save On Location

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";
$contents = "testdata1
header('Content-type: application/');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.$filename);
echo $contents;

Is there a way instead of using the header function, use something like: fopen, fwrite, fclose ?

Read An Excel File That Has Been Saved As A Comma Separated Values File?

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.

Exporting DB Results (or Flat File) To An Excel File

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.

File Download Problem - Change A Binary File Into A Text And Open It In A Browser

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:

    include 'includes/configdb.php'
    include 'includes/opendb.php'

    $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"); ....

Writing A File With A Cron - Error - Failed To Open Stream: No Such File Or Directory In?

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:

php httpdocs/scripts/cron_writeFile.php

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.
