Take a look at Rich Text Runs in the documentation (section 4.6.38), and in the Feature Demo ( in the /Tests subdirectory.


$objRichText = new PHPExcel_RichText();
$objBolded = $objRichText->createTextRun('d');

Hey Mark,

Thank you for your reply.


The thing is I have downloaded all the examples available.

But this is interesting: I have examined and studied  But it didnt help. The reason is, the excel5 it generates is not proper. when I generate this as 2007 version it work fine.

None of the Richtext is showing properly in excel5 version. The rotation also failed in excel 5. and I am talking about the provided test files not generated by me.

Please let me know what I am missing.

By the way this is a great software. I liked it

Work Item 8916: rich text isn't supported in the Excel5 Writer (the Excel5 Reader does read it though)
