Hi everyone,

I have a code which converts a html page into excel file. The following code has been working well so far, but Im having a problem of converting the html page into excel file after I had changed the localhost to another server. It's not able to generate excel file!

May I know what's wrong with my code? Thanks!:)

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var currentTime = new Date()
var month = currentTime.getMonth() + 1
var day = currentTime.getDate()
var year = currentTime.getFullYear()
//-->
</script>

<?php
include('ADC_project_excel1.php');
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM NewProject");
$count = mysql_num_fields($result);

for ($i = 0; $i < $count; $i++){
$header .= mysql_field_name($result, $i)."\t";
}

while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)){
$line = '';
foreach($row as $value){
if(!isset($value) || $value == ""){
$value = "\t";
}else{
$value = str_replace('"', '""', $value);
$value = '"' . $value . '"' . "\t";
}


$line .= $value;
}
$data .= trim($line)."\n";
}
$data = str_replace("\r", "", $data);
if ($data == "") {
$data = "\nno matching records found\n";
}
//header("Content-Type: application/vnd.ms-excel; name='excel'");

header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");

header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=excelfile.xls");
header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Expires: 0");

echo $header."\n".$data; 

//print "done";

?>

If you look at the example you will see that you just need to define the input, the output file name and then include the module.

$dfw_data = $data;
$dfw_filename = "fileout.xls"; 
include ".../desktop_file_write.php";

Your input to this (your $data variable) needs to be a properly formatted html table. Again, see the example. You don't want/need the \t or \n at the end of a line. The line should end with a </tr>.

Yea. It's working. But the same problem happen.

The code is working if i connect to my localhost server. However, once i changed to another server, it's now working. Instead of giving me an excel file, it displays all the result on the html page.

Did you change the file path too? I have not looked at the module though!

Hi guys, it's weird. I had managed to get 3 codes (different styles) which convert a html page to excel files. All the three codes work if my server is connected to local host, but only one of them work if i connect to another server.

It's really a bizarre.

May be they depend on special library that is not installed on your server. Compare output of phpinfo() on both servers
