View Full Version : Creating/Exporting to Excel from Flash?

05-01-2006, 04:17 PM
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to generate a MS Excel file from a Flash movie?

I am planning on making something where the user will enter some data then Flash will create an Excel spreadhseet?

Is this possible?

If not are there any alternatives you can think of?

Howdy and Welcome... :)

I don't think you can create an Excel file unless you know the file structure...
But you sure can create a comma delemited file(CSV) and have Excel read/convert it...

Would it then be possible to open that file with Excel from with in Flash?

Do you know of any tutorials on how to create a CSV file from Flash?

You can have Flash open up that CSV file into the Excel only if that's the default program assigned on the user's computer...

No tutorial I am aware of... You've got to Google(or in this forum) on how you can save a text file from Flash to create a text file...
