We will be pushing out a decent ExcelExporter plugin for Xojo soon.
For many years we have had the Excel Exporter classes that wrote to old XML Excel file format which has little to no support any more. This format never even was Excel’s main format but was more of created for interoperability back then.
And of course over the years there have been countless requests for a decent exporter that can write out to fully native and up to date xlsx Excel files.
The new Plugin will put the old Excel exporter classes from us to rest.
The new plugin writes fully native xlsx files.
If it will be in December 2016 or January 2017 I do not know but current status of the project is that basic features work on Mac 32 bit and 64 bit as well as Windows 32 bit and 64 bit. Linux remains to be done and more complex features will then be slowly added to all of the platforms.
Feature set will be far more bigger than we ever had on the old Excel Exporter classes.
Other than that then updating more controls and fine tuning for the Windows changes in Xojo 2016r4 has most of the focus.
