I have a basic database user id, name, address, age. I want my user to go to www.myurl/download.php and download a copy of the database as a text or excel file in rows.

Is this possible?


Thanks,

R.

You can try this then and just link to this script:

<?php
header("Content-type: application/octet-stream");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=filename.xls");
header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Expires: 0");
include("dbconnect.inc.php");
mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password);
@mysql_select_db($database) or die("Unable to select database");
$select = "SELECT * FROM db";
$export = mysql_query($select);
$count = mysql_num_fields($export);
for ($i = 0; $i < $count; $i++) {
$header .= mysql_field_name($export, $i)."\t";
}
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($export)) {
$line = '';
foreach($row as $value) {
if ((!isset($value)) OR ($value == "")) {
$value = "\t";
} else {
$value = str_replace('"', '""', $value);
$value = '"' . $value . '"' . "\t";
}
$line .= $value;
}
$data .= trim($line)."\n";
}
$data = str_replace("\r", "", $data);
if ($data == "") {
$data = "\n(0) Records Found!\n";
}
print "$header\n$data";
?>
