Good point but it looks like it does require PEAR.php jsut for the error 
handling. So you could download both the Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer 
package and the PEAR.php and make sure those are both in your path and 
it should work.

Also, fyi you can install all of PEAR locally, as long as you have FTP 
or ssh access. May take some imaginative hacks depending on how locked 
down the host is, but it can always be done.

also I've used Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer and it works very well. You 
probably won't find anything better but I'd be interested if so.
