Hi Arjun,

I worked with PHPExcel and facing an issue with a new row which is created by the library automaticall.

I have a master excel file and i’m trying to delete few rows from it and rewriting that using $objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($doc, ‘Excel5’); function.

But there is a empty row inserting after the actual data row.

Can you please help me out.
