How can I export data into Word/Excel documents?


There are many possible ways to achieve this with PHP.

One of the simplest ways to get data into a format that can be used with Excel is simply to write a .csv text file, or comma separated file, and then open this in excel.

This will split the data into columns based on where the commas are, so you will need to ensure that your data is well formatted to make this value, and so this means that the comma only appears as a separator for instance and if it appears elsewhere it is escaped.
