Hi folks;

I am new to PHP Excel. I am amazed at the wonderful functionality provided with this tool suite. Thanks so much

to the developers !!

I have a quick question...is it possible to search a particular row looking for a specific text value, and have the colum it was found in returned. I may want to then delete the column # ??? Or does one need to use the iterator to perform such a task ??

thanks,

walter

There is no built-in method to do this. You'd need to write the code to do so yourself: using iterators is the most obvious tool to roll your own.
