NAME

    Spreadsheet::WriteExcel - Write formatted text and numbers to a
    cross-platform Excel binary file.

======================================================================
DESCRIPTION

    The Spreadsheet::WriteExcel module can be used to create a cross-
    platform Excel binary file. Multiple worksheets can be added to a
    workbook and formatting can be applied to cells. Text, numbers,
    formulas, hyperlinks and images can be written to the cells.

    TThe Excel file produced by this module is compatible with 97,
    2000, 2002 and 2003.

    The module will work on the majority of Windows, UNIX and
    Macintosh platforms. Generated files are also compatible with the
    spreadsheet applications Gnumeric and OpenOffice.org.

    This module cannot be used to read an Excel file. See
    Spreadsheet::ParseExcel or look at the main documentation for some
    suggestions. This module cannot be uses to write to an existing
    Excel file.

SYNOPSIS

        my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("perl.xls");

        # Add a worksheet
        $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet();

        #  Add and define a format
        $format = $workbook->add_format(); # Add a format
        $format->set_bold();
        $format->set_color('red');
        $format->set_align('center');

        # Write a formatted and unformatted string.
        $col = $row = 0;
        $worksheet->write($row, $col, "Hi Excel!", $format);
        $worksheet->write(1,    $col, "Hi Excel!");

        # Write a number and a formula using A1 notation
        $worksheet->write('A3', 1.2345);
        $worksheet->write('A4', '=SIN(PI()/4)');
