Just tried PHPExcel, and was really excited. I tried creating a simple report and saved it in both Excel2007 and Excel5 format. The file saved in Excel2007 format was really good, with all the formatting and pictures embedded in the file, but when I opened the Excel5 format, pictures are not shown or embedded. Even tried your sample php scripts and I got same results, can you help me about this problem? I used OpenOffice 2.4 opening the files, is the problem related to this?

Can you try opening it in Excel 200x? I just ran the demo scripts and they all open fine in Excel 2003 + 2007.

Ok, I will try opening the files using Microsoft Excel 2003. I used your classes on my current project and it was so great, fast report generation on-the-fly. I used Excel2007 writer for the meantime. Thanks!
