File uploads

Here at CodePlex we don't have the ability to upload files in discussion posts. It is difficult for users to send us files, but we often need users to open this or that Excel file as part of debugging.

Uploading files can be done in the issue tracker: http://phpexcel.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=10749. This can be used for sharing files with the PHPExcel team.

Some ground rules for file uploads:

  • When uploading a file to this issue, give it a clear name
  • Add a comment to the issue tracker, stating file <name> is related to discussion post <link>

Whatever you do...

...always mention your PHP version, PHPExcel version and operating system and be as detailed as possible. "It's not working!" may be correct, but does not provide us the required information to make it work.
