The only part of code i found in the documentation that could help me is to read an Excel file and display it in a HTML table :

require_once 'phpexcel/Classes/PHPExcel.php';
$objReader = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createReader('Excel2007');

$objPHPExcel = $objReader->load("edf/equipement.xlsx");
$objWorksheet = $objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet();

$highestRow = $objWorksheet->getHighestRow(); 
$highestColumn = $objWorksheet->getHighestColumn(); 

$highestColumnIndex = PHPExcel_Cell::columnIndexFromString($highestColumn); 

echo '<table border="1">' . "\n";
for ($row = 1; $row <= $highestRow; ++$row) {
  echo '<tr>' . "\n";

  for ($col = 0; $col <= $highestColumnIndex; ++$col) {
    echo '<td>' . $objWorksheet->getCellByColumnAndRow($col, $row)->getValue() . '</td>' . "\n";

  echo '</tr>' . "\n";
echo '</table>' . "\n";`

I know i can use the loop to feed my MySQL table, but i don't know how... I'm not aware in OOP...

Can somebody help me, please ?

Thanks a lot.
