    Description

      We are currently using the Excel writer package to export data to XLS format.

      The code for this is currently in two locations:

      • lib/excel
      • lib/pear/Spreadsheet/Excel

      The Excel writer is producing output that is either mal-formed or missing data and often will not open or import into applications.

      According to the authors of the package at http://pear.php.net/package/Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer...

      Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer is outdated and needs a complete rewrite. If you want to help with this task please get in touch with us. Otherwise we don't recommend this package for new development.

      Things that need to happen:

      1. The places where this code is used needs to be reviewed.
      2. An alternative library needs to be found or created
