     This script takes the contents of a MySQL table and dumps it to either a dynamically-generated MS Word File (file with ending '.doc') or a dynamically-generated MS Excel File (file with ending '.xls'). You can place this script on any Unix/Linux or Windows Server running PHP & MySQL, but you have to access it using a browser on a Windows computer with Word or Excel installed on it. This script does not use COM objects and does not support multiple Worksheets in Excel. It can be used not only for creating complete dumps of MySQL tables (as Word or Excel files), but can be very easily modified to support just about any kind of select statement you'd like to use.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
