Cannot Modify Header Information

Postby libertyct » 20. January 2007 21:16

just a quick question, i was trying this code, creating an excel file
but i get a "Cannot Modify Header Information" error, what am i doing wrong?

$query = "SELECT fname, lname FROM students";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error, query failed');

$tsv = array();
$html = array();
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_NUM))
{
$tsv[] = implode("\t", $row);
$html[] = "<tr><td>" .implode("</td><td>", $row) . "</td></tr>";
}

$tsv = implode("\r\n", $tsv);
$html = "<table>" . implode("\r\n", $html) . "</table>";

$fileName = 'mysql-to-excel.xls';
header("Content-type: application/vnd.ms-excel");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$fileName");

echo $tsv;
//echo $html;

There is an output before the header() function.

Check where it is in your HTML code. The placement of certain functions is VERY important. Especially when using header() check out php.net for more information
