This may be asking a bit much, but is there any way to gain control over the appearance of the generated content? In my instance, I'd like to be able to change the default font-size. And having bold / italics would be handy for column headers.

Any ideas...?

This has been the most common question since this class was released.
Information on the Binary Interchange File Format (BIFF8) will provide additional information on worksheets, font and cell formating.

Hopefully you will find the following links useful:

Sorry but the links below didn't help me... Is still having no formatting and I don't understand why I can't do "/n" (return to a another line).

I'm also having some trouble styling the outputted excel document. If anyone could be kind enough to cook up a small example on this subject, I would be very thankful :-)

is there a way to write the biff8 information through your stream handler? Or do i have to write the data to file, close it then open the xls file another way?

Thanks in advance.
