Allow PHPExcel to understand OOCalc sheet.range notaion as well as Excel's sheet!range

Jan 17, 2015 at 5:53 PM
I've been digging through the source with my very limited knowledge of PHP and have had no luck so far.

Is it possible to set up PHPExcel to be able to use OOCalc's notation properly for 'Sheet.from:to'
handling versus having to re-save my spreadsheets as Excel files first?

I'm thinking that a flag should be set when a specific type of reader is instantiated to change the expected syntax for referencing sheets.ranges to match the original application.

I'd love to give it a go but I am lost so far. Any hints?
