sorry no changes

Please, revert convert.php and add into code.php the follow line in the beginning:


Make sure that cURL extension is turned on in php.ini:

  1. extension=php_curl.dll ==> already activate
  2. error_reporting(E_ALL);

==> nothing happen

Try to update convert.php one more time.
After updating it should output debug information.
Do you still have empty page?

Are you using php connector version 1.0?

yes i am using php connector v1.0

I edit the file, and I get the following message ==> bool(false)

Please, modify file convert.php like here:

echo curl_error($handle)." errno: ".curl_errno($handle);

What does script output?

Could not resolve host: …; Host not found errno: 6bool(false)

Ohh, yes. You have to specify the whole url here:

$convert = new ConvertService("../../resources/lib/dhtmlxGrid/excel-php/generate.php");	

i.e. somthing like this:

$convert = new ConvertService("http://somedomain/project/resources/lib/dhtmlxGrid/excel-php/generate.php");	

its work thx lot.

but :

$config->setHeader(“C.B,Marque,Projet,Derniere M.a.J,#cspan”);

the header is not properly exported

AND when i try to open the file exported i get this message :

the file format you are trying to open is different from that specified by the file extension. Make sure the file is not damaged and that comes from a reliable source

attech header export not working in server side export

Here is one more convert.php update.
It will process tag into correct format.
Convert script doesn’t support rowspan/colspan in header/footer.
