As far as I'm aware, Excel doesn't support worksheet files, only workbooks..... what do you expect to get? You can create a workbook with only a single worksheet, but it's still a workbook file. Other writers, such as HTML and PDF allow you to specify that you only want a single worksheet.

I see then..phpExcel can load the worksheet names and display the content of the worksheet in the workbook but they cannot be downloaded right? Correct me if i'm wrong because i need to understand this.

i cannot understand your question

What do you want to download?

a worksheet file is not existing in excel world..

If you want a workbook with just one worksheet from a bigger file, you can read the source workbook and create a new workbook with just one worksheet (and then download this WORKBOOK)
