What PHP version are you using? Maybe PHP4? Try to upgrade to latest PHP 5.2.9

Hi koyama,

i'm using PHP Version 5.2.5... I cannot upgrade to PHP 5.2.9 because the linux server is from my webhosting provider.

thanks !

This puzzles me. I thought PHP 5.2.5 would not have problems with that syntax.

What happens if you change from this:

$objPHPExcel->getProperties()->setCreator( $pUser );

to this:

$properties = $objPHPExcel->getProperties();
$properties->setCreator( $pUser );

Can you double check your PHP version using phpinfo() ? It really looks like you have PHP 4.
