    not able to read orangelinks_mmddyyyy.xls thru php
    I am trying to read orange links file using php on linux but i am getting error "file ??? is not readable". I am making use of PHP excel reader. I am trying to read the excel from the FTP folder where performics/google dropped the file. If I open that file in editor, copy all data into excel on local machine and then saveas "97-2003" version of spreadsheet and upload that file, then my php script can read that. Is there anything I can do it solve this problem.

    The orangelinks files are just txt files. You can open and read them in php using the plain old fopen function.

    Open the file manually in Microsoft Excel and click on "Save As" and save it as .csv

    That will convert it from Microsoft Excel format to plain text .csv
