Wow that was a quick response. Good to see what I have chosen is well supported.
Sounds interesing when you say
>>>"Would it not be possible just to load the existing workbook as a template using for example PHPExcel_Reader_Excel2007? Or did you try that, but it was too slow?"
However too much of a newbie to know how at this point.
So using this method would I just load it into memory as a template first, then make amendments to it (therefore mostly the actual data) and then product my spreadsheet?
The only thing is when the data is produced there is a lot of looping so from one spreadsheet to the next the data might be different (e.g. sales items if producing an invoice for example - one order might have one item the next order might have 100 items
- based on the same spreadsheet but many differences because of the quantity of data).
but I guess if I can use insert row or something.
Remember I've very new to using this library.
