SimpleXLSX class 0.8.3 (Official)

Parse and retrieve data from Excel XLSx files. MS Excel 2007 workbooks PHP reader.

No addiditional extensions need (internal unzip + standart SimpleXML parser)

Basic Usage

if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('book.xlsx') ) {
	print_r( $xlsx->rows() );
} else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}
Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [0] => ISBN
            [1] => title
            [2] => author
            [3] => publisher
            [4] => ctry
        )

    [1] => Array
        (
            [0] => 618260307
            [1] => The Hobbit
            [2] => J. R. R. Tolkien
            [3] => Houghton Mifflin
            [4] => USA
        )

)

Installation

composer require shuchkin/simplexlsx

Examples

XLSX to html table

if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('book.xlsx') ) {
	echo '<table border="1" cellpadding="3" style="border-collapse: collapse">';
	foreach( $xlsx->rows() as $r ) {
		echo '<tr><td>'.implode('</td><td>', $r ).'</td></tr>';
	}
	echo '</table>';
	// or $xlsx->toHTML();	
} else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}

XLSX read cells, out commas and bold headers

echo '<pre>';
if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse( 'xlsx/books.xlsx' ) ) {
	foreach ( $xlsx->rows() as $r => $row ) {
		foreach ( $row as $c => $cell ) {
			echo ($c > 0) ? ', ' : '';
			echo ( $r === 0 ) ? '<b>'.$cell.'</b>' : $cell;
		}
		echo '<br/>';
	}
} else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}
echo '</pre>';

XLSX get sheet names and sheet indexes

if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse( 'xlsx/books.xlsx' ) ) {
	print_r( $xlsx->sheetNames() );
}
// Sheet numeration started 0
Array
(
    [0] => Sheet1
    [1] => Sheet2
    [2] => Sheet3
)

Gets extend cell info by ->rowsEx()

print_r( SimpleXLSX::parse('book.xlsx')->rowsEx() );
Array
(
    [0] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [type] => s
                    [name] => A1
                    [value] => ISBN
                    [href] => 
                    [f] => 
                    [format] => 
                    [r] => 1
                )

            [1] => Array
                (
                    [type] => s
                    [name] => B1
                    [value] => title
                    [href] => 
                    [f] => 
                    [format] => 
                    [r] => 1
                )

Select Sheet

$xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('book.xlsx');
print_r( $xlsx->rows(1) ); // Sheet numeration started 0, we select second worksheet

Get sheet by index

$xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('book.xlsx');	
echo 'Sheet Name 2 = '.$xlsx->sheetName(1);

XLSX::parse remote data

if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('http://www.example.com/example.xlsx' ) ) {
	list($num_cols, $num_rows) = $xlsx->dimension(1); // don't dimension trust extracted from xml
	echo $xlsx->sheetName(1).':'.$num_cols.'x'.$num_rows;
} else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}

XLSX::parse memory data

// For instance $data is a data from database or cache    
if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse( $data, true ) ) {
	print_r( $xlsx->rows() );
 else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}

Get Cell (slow)

echo $xlsx->getCell(0, 'B2'); // The Hobbit

DateTime helpers

echo $xlsx->getCell(0,'C2'); // 2016-04-12 13:41:00
$xlsx->setDateTimeFormat('d.m.Y H:i');
echo $xlsx->getCell(0,'C2'); // 12.04.2016 13:41
$xlsx->setDateTomeFormat('U'); // returns as unixtimestamp
echo  $xlsx->getCell(0,'C2'); // 1460468460
$excel_date = $xlsx->setDateTimeFormat( NULL ); // returns as excel datetime
echo $excel_date // 42472.570138889
echo date('m/d/Y', $xlsx->unixstamp( $excel_date )); // 04/12/2016 

Debug

ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL );
ini_set('display_errors', 1 );

if ( $xlsx = SimpleXLSX::parse('books.xlsx', false, true ) ) {
	echo $xlsx->toHTML();
} else {
	echo SimpleXLSX::parseError();
}

Classic OOP style

$xlsx = new SimpleXLSX('books.xlsx');
if ($xlsx->success()) {
	print_r( $xlsx->rows() );
} else {
	echo 'xlsx error: '.$xlsx->error();
}
