     Writes an Excel BIFF 2.1 spreadsheet file DIRECTLY. No external DLL's or Excel automation needed. Great for exporting data from your application to an Excel spreadsheet without the overhead of JET or ADO. This is a small update that includes the ability to create Horizontal Page Breaks and to specify default formats for numbers and dates (for example, the number 20000 could be given a format of #,### in the file - thanks to Dieter Hauk). Updated June 20/2001: Fixed lost row 32768 if more than 32767 rows are output to the BIFF file. Thanks to Sid Eaton for noticing this problem. Updated November 10/2001: Added support for default row height and the ability to set the row height of individual rows. Example on how to save dates to the file.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
