Features

  • writing Excel (.XLS) spreadsheets
  • support: strings (with formatting for text and cells), formulas, images (BMP)

Limitations

Library support only 2 types of format for writing XLS, also known as Binary Interchange File Format (BIFF):

  • BIFF5 (Excel 5.0 - Excel 95)
  • BIFF8 (Excel 98 - Excel 2003)

Some important limitations:

Limit BIFF5 BIFF8
Maximum number of rows 16384 65535
Maximum number of columns 255 255
Maximum data size of a record 2080 bytes 8224 bytes
Unicode support CodePage based character encoding UTF-16LE

Explanation of formats and specifications you can find here (section "Useful references")

Correct output only guaranteed with mbstring.func_overload = 0 otherwise, you should use workround mb_internal_encoding('latin1');

Usage

Basic usage

use Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer;


$filePath = __DIR__ . '/output/out.xls';
$xls = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer($filePath);

// 8 = BIFF8
$xls->setVersion(8);

$sheet = $xls->addWorksheet('info');

// only available with BIFF8
$sheet->setInputEncoding('UTF-8');

$headers = [
    'id',
    'name',
    'email',
    'code',
    'address'
];

$row = $col = 0;
foreach ($headers as $header) {
    $sheet->write($row, $col, $header);
    $col++;
}

for ($id = 1; $id < 100; $id++) {
    $data = [
        'id' => $id,
        'name' => 'Name Surname',
        'email' => 'mail@gmail.com',
        'password' => 'cfcd208495d565ef66e7dff9f98764da',
        'address' => '00000 North Tantau Avenue. Cupertino, CA 12345. (000) 1234567'
    ];
    $sheet->writeRow($id, 0, $data);
}

$xls->close();

Format usage

$xls = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();

$titleFormat = $xls->addFormat(); 
$titleFormat->setFontFamily('Helvetica');
$titleFormat->setBold();
$titleFormat->setSize(10);
$titleFormat->setColor('orange'); 
$titleFormat->setBorder(1);
$titleFormat->setBottom(2);
$titleFormat->setBottomColor(44);
$titleFormat->setAlign('center');

$sheet = $xls->addWorksheet('info'); 

$sheet->write(0, 0, 'Text 123', $titleFormat);

Header usage (Sending HTTP header for download dialog)

$xls = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();
$xls->send('excel_'.date("Y-m-d__H:i:s").'.xls');

Performance

Platform:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4670 CPU @ 3.40GHz
PHP 7.4

Test case:
Write xls (BIFF8 format, UTF-8), by 5 cells (1x number, 4x string without format/styles, average line length = 120 char) in each row

Estimated performance:

Number of rows Time (seconds) Peak memory usage (MB)
10000 0.2 4
20000 0.4 4
30000 0.6 6
40000 0.8 6
50000 1.0 8
65534 1.2 8
