Dear all,
I have exists excel file on server. Now, I want output the file by php. I have this code:

$file = "test.xls";
if (file_exists($file)) {
    header('Content-Type: application/ms-excel');
    header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.$file);

When I click download button, I can open file, but appear "missing css file" dialog and content of this file have replaced by special character.
Anyone help me? Thank you in advanced.

So you need to read the cells in the excel and dump tables.

E.g. read excel cell1

---excel value
close table
