Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------


Would it be acceptable to use PHP to stuff Access, and then
use the same postprocessing step as you already use?

 From memory, you can have an ODBC connection to Excel,
so you may be able to write directly from PHP to Excel.
CF->Excel should be easy too (possibly easier because
of driver availability).

Subject:  [thelist] Attachments and mail through PHP

I was thinking about a problem at work.  One of the people here sends out
surveys via access databases through e-mail, and then the results are
manually compiled into an excel worksheet.  I was thinking of using PHP to
have a single web interface.  The only problem is the excel worksheet.  Is
there anyway to use mail to add an attachment to an outgoing e-mail?
