Download table from mysql in .xls without Popup in Php

For download table from myslq into .xls form without asking have two basic steps:

  1. create connection to the database
  2. create index file to get the data from database, execute code and get desired output ( .xls file )

1.  connection to Database in connection.php

<?php $server="localhost"; 
$dbusername="root"; $dbPassword=""; 
$dbname="Database Name"; 
$connection_error= "your database is not connected";
 if(!mysql_connect($server,$dbusername,$dbPassword) || !mysql_select_db($dbname)) { die($connection_error); }


2. Then in index.php add this code

<?php // connection connection file to index.php 
include ("connection.php");

 $setCounter = 0; $setData=""; 
$setExcelName = "download_excal_file";

// sql query which brings your table data
 $setSql = "SELECT * FROM `tablename` WHERE 1";

 // executing select query
 $setRec = mysql_query($setSql);

 // counting number of rows in the result of select query 
$setCounter = mysql_num_fields($setRec); $setMainHeader="";

 // creating header for .xls file

 for ($i = 0; $i &lt; $setCounter; $i++)
 $setMainHeader .= mysql_field_name($setRec, $i)."\t"; 
while($rec = mysql_fetch_row($setRec))
 { $rowLine = ''; 

foreach($rec as $value)
 if(!isset($value) || $value == "")
$value = "\t"; 
else {
 //It escape all the special charactor, quotes from the data. 
$value = strip_tags(str_replace('"', '""', $value));

$value = '"' . $value . '"' . "\t";
 $rowLine .= $value;
$setData .= trim($rowLine)."\n";

 $setData = str_replace("\r", "", $setData);

 if ($setData == "") 
$setData = "\nno matching records found\n";

 $setCounter = mysql_num_fields($setRec);

 $myfile = fopen($setExcelName."_Reoprt.xls", "w") or die("Unable to open file!");

 $txt = $setMainHeader. $setData;

 fwrite($myfile, $txt);

after adding this code in index file just load the file to the browser and check the root folder of your code you will get a xls file created with file name ending with “_Report.xls”

NOTE: You can give selected fields name if you want to get only some selected column instead of all the fields of table.


Full screen div at any screen and resolution

Add this in your javascript file and call this file after jquery file

function fullsize() 
	var new_height = window.innerHeight; // get new height of window
	var fullsize = new_height; 
	fullsize = parseInt(fullsize) + 'px'; // concatenate string get output in px format  
	jQuery("div").css('height',fullsize); // changing height of div
	jQuery(window).bind('resize', fullsize); // event is call at screen change ( resolution changes )

Note: you can replace ‘jQuery’ with ‘$’ if there is any issue due to ‘jQuery’ Keyword.
