</tr>

    </table>
    <?php mysql_close(); ?>

    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Save" >
</form>
</body>
</html>

Thanks! :)

Are you looking to export the whole database to excel or just a specific part, if it's the whole thing it would be easier to look at CSV downloading.

You can select specific parts but it might take a tad longer :P

hi bradley_spicer! :)

i would like the displayed result to be exported. right now, i only have 1 record on the table. :)

Take a look at this one as well. This is the tutorial that guided me to accomplish exporting data to excel.

Good luck.
