Help for integration PHPExcel

#1

Hello to you, I am working on an improvement of a project develop with zf2.
I am having difficulty integrating PHPExcel.
I would like to use this library to import data from the file to modify the data in the database.

Can you describe your problem in more detail? Thanks!

First of all, you want to use PHPSpreadsheet, not PHPExcel, since PHPExcel is deprecated.

I second this, do not start anything with PHPExcel, the project has been dead for 4 years now. Instead use https://github.com/PHPOffice/PhpSpreadsheet (or another alternative).

ok thank you, I had to make the observation. and I used the library RdnCsv which solved my problem.

I know this doesn’t help anyone, but just for conversation’s sake: last time I needed to deal with Excel data I saw that the PhpExcel project was on the way out, and its successor PhpSpreadsheet was not yet stable, so I turned to a Python solution – it was cli stuff, so it didn’t matter. Happy ending.
