RE: Exporting to Excel ( all versions )

Any ideas or links would be appritiated, I’m totally out of ideas.

Short of porting the Perl code, there is no solution. In my defense,
this method did not exist when I originally ported the code. It
wouldn’t be too difficult to port but given the restrictions (24-bit
true color bitmap images only, incompatible with write_comment,
incompatible with Gnumeric or OOO) it strikes me as being of very
limited use.

Mind you, I’m assuming there are no 95 vs 97 issues with the port. If
there are, then it’s doomed no matter what.

If you’re on Windows your other option is to use Win32OLE to generate
the spreadsheet instead. Otherwise, you’ll have to put in a feature
request with Hans and hope. :confused:

First off, thanks for replying Daniel, didn’t expect to bump into you

Secondly, I have no idea where I would start with that… I’m willing
try, but I wouldn’t have the first clue of where to start looking…

What class would the Excel interation happen in? I’m assuming I’d have
open the perl source code for, does it go deeper than that?
I’m not too good at this stuff, and unfortunatley (in this case), I’m on
Mac, as are many of the users of the application…

I do’nt think Hans is very interested in the project anymore, to the
where the sourceforge page is dead, I think I’m on my own :frowning:

P.S. While you’re here… mind explaining the merge function? i can’t
it to work :frowning:
