"phpexcel error in codeigniter “unable to load the requested class: iofactory”" Answer’s

0

I've used PHPExcel with CodeIgniter successfully before.

All I did was drop the phpexcel folder into application/third-party and created the following wrapper library:

<?php

class Excel {

    private $excel;

    public function __construct() {
        // initialise the reference to the codeigniter instance
        require_once APPPATH.'third_party/phpexcel/PHPExcel.php';
        $this->excel = new PHPExcel();    
    }

    public function load($path) {
        $objReader = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createReader('Excel5');
        $this->excel = $objReader->load($path);
    }

    public function save($path) {
        // Write out as the new file
        $objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($this->excel, 'Excel5');
        $objWriter->save($path);
    }

    public function stream($filename) {       
        header('Content-type: application/ms-excel');
        header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="".$filename."""); 
        header("Cache-control: private");        
        $objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($this->excel, 'Excel5');
        $objWriter->save('php://output');    
    }

    public function  __call($name, $arguments) {  
        // make sure our child object has this method  
        if(method_exists($this->excel, $name)) {  
            // forward the call to our child object  
            return call_user_func_array(array($this->excel, $name), $arguments);  
        }  
        return null;  
    }  
}

?>

I could then do the following in my controllers:

$this->load->library("excel");
$this->excel->load("/path/to/input.xls");
$this->excel->setActiveSheetIndex(0);
$this->excel->getActiveSheet()->SetCellValue('B2', "whatever");
$this->excel->save("/path/to/output.xls");

Hope this helps you out?
