Is it possible to have the output from PHPExcel produce a file type that is compatible with Excel used in Windows XP ( .xls file extension?)  I haven't been able to find related documentation as of yet. 

I see this line that dictates Excel 2007 file output:

$objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($objPHPExcel, 'Excel2007');

Is there other options for this?

Thank you for your assistance.  Ron

Excel5 Writer generates .xls files, Excel2007 Writer generates .xlsx files. This is all fully documented
