easiest way I know is to view it in a web browser and then highlight the information and copy it to excel.

use the following code:

i have just included the first row and hope you will not have problems with the rest:

<?php


echo "<table cellspacing='4' cellpadding='4' border=1 align=center>";
echo"<tr>";
echo"<td>Day</td>";
echo"<td>Time</td>";
echo"<td>Unit</td>";
echo"<td>Lecturer</td>";
echo"</tr>";

echo"</table>";















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

# replace excelfile.xls with whatever you want the filename to default to
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=excelfile.xls");
header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Expires: 0");


?> 
  
  
</p>
</body>
</html>

please if found this code helpful, can you add my reputation

can i format the table columns? like tell the column to act as a number?
i getting 1231 instead 1.23443E+14 of 123443211234000
