Contest Brief

DESCRIPTION:
I need the ability to send form results to an excel (.xls or xlsx) spreadsheet and then email the user that particular spreadsheet with all the new data in it.
I already have the HTML form built and I can provide an example of the excel file I want.

I need you to build me the code in php that will do all of this for me.


HOW IT SHOULD WORK:
When the internet user completes the form online, I will receive an email with the attached spreadsheet with the form results. (That's all)
Inside the spreadsheet will be all of the data that user entered into the form.



YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING:
- Create a php file which process my form (once it's sent) and make the form results go to Excel.
- Then sending that excel file as an email attachment to me.


TECHNICAL DETAILS:
- The form is already created. Is has 70 fields which are all numbers.

- Example of what is arriving today by email:
Age 1: 50
Age 2: 10

- Server supports
HTML / XHTML / CSS / JS / WAP / WML / XML
PHP
Perl Script
CGI Scripts
Phyton

- HTML Side:
The fields are select values like this:
<select name="age1" required="required" id="age1">
<option value="Ingrese valor" selected="selected"></option>
<option value="0">20</option>
<option value="1">30</option>
<option value="2">40</option>
<option value="3">50</option>
<option value="4">60</option>
<option value="5">70</option>
</select>

-PHP side (now):
username: $nombre
\nage1: $age1
\nage2: $age2
\nage3: $age3


UPDATES:
- Please feel free to send me demos. If I tried the code and it's succesfully, then you are the winner.
- The email attachment should go a defined email in the code. The user never enters his email.
- Lastly, the attachment name will be generate from a variable. Example:
[login to view URL]
[login to view URL]
- Responses should arrive in columns. Example
A1: response 1
A2: Response 2

B1: 10
B2: 20
Attached is an example.

    You have to include two PHP libraries, I'm attaching the URL for their zip, just extract those into the folder where the form is. Here is the PHPmailer ( http://creativecp.com/dev/export-csv/PHPmailer.zip ) and the second one is PHPexcel ( http://creativecp.com/dev/export-csv/PHPExcel.zip )

    Hi all.
    Please feel free to send me demos. If I tried the code and it's succesfully, then you are the winner.

    The email attachment should go a defined email in the code. The user never enters his email.

    On the other hand, there was a mistake in the excel format in the brief. It said (XML) instead of saying XLS.

    Lastly, the attachment name will be generate from a variable. Example:
    name1.xls
    name2.xls

    Thanks!

    It should only be .xml file OR can be any excel file?

    • 3 years ago
    1. ewhttp

      • 3 years ago

      it should be a readable format. Any format which I can open instantly. Perhaps .csv is not the best here
