Output More Than 255 Characters In An Excel Cell Using Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer()?

May 11, 2009

I am trying to output a few paragraphs of text in an Excel spreadsheet, but right now the text is truncated to display only 255 characters. The code is pretty straightforward:

$xls =& new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();
$sheet =& $xls->addWorksheet($name);
foreach ($rec as $field) {
$rec = ($rec['data'] ? $rec['data'] : $rec);
$sheet->write($row, $col++, $field);

Is there anything I can do to get all of the text, not just the 255 chars?

Updating Excel Cell...works In Debugger Only

Aug 9, 2006

I've got an interesting problem. I'm updating and displaying an excel
spreadsheet (using com) from a php file. Works great in the debugger
(PhpEd 4.6), but not otherwise. I assume there must be a difference in
PHP versions in effect here.

Instantiating com, opening workbook, activating sheet, selecting cell,
activating cell all work just fine... but when I try to set the cell
value, I just get "waiting on localhost" and it never returns.

PHPExcel Reading A Cell's Format?

Jul 6, 2011

I am having trouble finding out how to read a cells format. I need to know if a cell's format is a date or not because when I read it into PHP it becomes a 5 digit number from excel. I know I can take this number and then use PHPExcel to convert it into a PHP date but I first need to know that the cell I am reading is in fact a date cell.

I am wondering if there is a method like getCellFormat or something that I can use.

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()'?

PHPExcel Auto Date Format For Excel?

May 19, 2011

I'm using PHPExcel to create Excel files and I have some "Date" columns which keeps the date values. However, PHPExcel forces me to define a date format to work with the date fields. For example

const FORMAT_DATE_YYYYMMDD2 = 'yyyy-mm-dd';
const FORMAT_DATE_YYYYMMDD = 'yy-mm-dd';
const FORMAT_DATE_DDMMYYYY = 'dd/mm/yy';
const FORMAT_DATE_DMYSLASH = 'd/m/y';
const FORMAT_DATE_DMYMINUS = 'd-m-y';


However, this is limited since you have to use one of these formats. What I want is, giving the date to PHPExcel without formatting (or with some special formatting type) and Excel would show it according to users current locale. If I use one of this formats the guy lives in USA would read a different time format to which he is not familiar to or the same situation for users who lives in different countries. In short, somehow excel must show the date in current locale of the user. Is this possible somehow? I googled but no chance.

The Best Excel Output Library?

Nov 3, 2009

The question is, which is it?I'm basically building an improved reporting tool in to a web-database that I maintain, and currently we can view on screen in a table or a graph, or we can output CSV, but that baffles some people who have to use it (don't ask!) so I'd like to just give them an Excel file (.XLS, not .XLSX) that they can open straight in to Excel and it look as it should.

So,I begin my research to see what Excel libraries are available for PHP and come across a few, but I cannot see any reviews for any. So,I'm interested in opinions from anyone who uses one (or more). I only need to be able to put in some simple formatting, like font sizes, font/cell colours and positions of the data (A1, D5 etc).

Form Output To Excel File

They want people to be able to select options for a car, like a "Build a Car" kind of deal like you see on car sites. They want it to output to an Excel file that looks like a specific format that they like with all the data that the people selected. I am sure you can output the form variables to a MySql Database, and then the database to an excel sheet. But I just don't get the details, like how to make the excel sheet adhere to a certain visual formatting, as well how to make each individual car go to one excel sheet.

Format CSV Data To Show Specialchars But Only Have Them Seen As Text Within MS Excel Or Calc?

I need to export data in the following form:

"this is a (x2") badly grammorize'd sentence. Yes, "no", maybe & more.","0043","false" etc..

However I can only get it to work when I apply htmlsepcialchars to each field. The data needs to remain as above, but when it comes into Excel or Calc some of the commas and single quotes etc screw it up. Meaning some of the sentence is in one cell and more in another.

$dataResult = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM data");
while ($rowData = mysql_fetch_row($dataResult))
for ($j=0;$j<32;$j++)
$csv_output .= '"'.htmlspecialchars($rowData[$j]).'",';
