Is it possible to get the value of a checkbox or form field using the latest version of PHPExcel? Or will I need to use an Excel COM object instead? Thanks!

PHPExcel does not support form elements such as checkboxes or fields, you'll need to use COM or PUNO for this

Hi Guys, could tell me more about COM and PUNO?

There's a whole section of the PHP manual devoted to using COM ( you'll need a server with MS Excel installed.

You can find about PUNO at their web site (,01,05), you'll need a server with Open Office Calc installed, and with Java support enabled and listening on a TCP/IP socket.
