Embed Excel2007 in PHPWord doc

Oct 17, 2011 at 11:39 PM

It looks like PHPWord only supports Excel 97-2003.  Excel files saved in Excel 2007 format fail to embed.  The error log shows:

PHP Notice:  Source does not exist or unsupported object type. in F:\development\workspace\php_includes\php_includes\PHPWord\Section.php on line 224
[17-Oct-2011 15:37:08] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Could not close zip file f:/development/workspace/capacityplanning/doc/biannual/customerletters/2012TrueUp/ac/10000/ac_10000.docx.' in F:\development\workspace\php_includes\php_includes\PHPWord\Writer\Word2007.php:158

We are generating the Excel using PHPExcel, so I can save the workbooks in a format acceptable to PHPWord - but - 1) Could this be a configuration issue on my end?  2) If not - are there plans to fix this in a future release?


Thanks ...
