            Thanks very much Johann for your creation, I see you did it some years ago, but it helped me with a problem I explain in . I just keep wondering what's the reason for the #value! error. If you have a chance to look at it, it will be of interest to me. Best Regards

            cells with strings > 255 chars
            Hi everybody,

            I'm using php writeexcel and I can write strings more than 255 chars in a cell.

            Is there a script to fix it ?

            I also see that the new version of Spreadsheet::WriteExcel can write more than 255 but the code is in PEAR.

            Can anybody help me ? Zanks a lot. Michel
