Thanks Hans.  Got David's book.  It is good.  Trying to use a package that's
not in there, Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer.  Anyone familiar with it?  I've Got
everything up-and-flying, however, can't seem to output anythign Excel like.
Spews the output directly to the screen of my browser rather than firing up
Excel.  Maybe I need to adjust something local.

I like David Sklar's Essential PHP Tools.  I use it fairly regularly.  I 
am also working my way through PHP 5 Power Programming by Andi Gutmans, 
Stig Bakken and Derick Rethans.  PHP 5 Power Programming is a good 
book.  The first part deals with the differences between PHP 4 and 5.  
Then launches into some good information about OOP and Patterns and 
follows with information about PEAR and other extensions.

Good luck!
