    Thanks! We have looked at this, but have arrived at the problem of
    opening the file for the user. Here is the process in a nutshell...

    User selects report and enters a cut-off date
    PHP retrieves info from database
    info is processed
    PHP opens an Excel headered file in the browser
    (hopefully graph appears in page)
    user is happy.

    I guess that we could open/save the file via PHP and do a redirect to
    open.

    We can open a frameset, showing the tab delimited Excel file in one
    frame and the graph in another. Not very elegant, but if push comes to
    shove...

    Thanks!

    This should be a question of sending the right headers.
