Create xls files without Excel
 
Create xls files without Excel. Is it possible?
 
Yes it is! The Excel file format is complex but I managed to implement the algorithm to create an XLS file that can contains 1 worksheet: the litXLS activeX dll. The resulting XLS is a pretty basic Excel file but nevertheless it is a fully working binary Excel file.
 
For more information about litXLS see: www.oraxcel.com/projects/litxls
 
It is handy to have a component to create a XLS file without having Excel installed. For example on web servers where you don't want to install and run MS Excel it may be nice to be able to create a XLS file on the fly. litXLS can be used with for example ASP to create XLS files. Of course it can also work with C, VB or other programming languages that use OLE/ActiveX.
