    Using Ruby to Get Data to Excel... How?

    hi all,

    i have developed a db application in php (i hadn't even heard of ruby until i was well into the never ending project). it is getting to the point that i need to develop some reporting tools for it.

    i think i want to run some queries, get the data into excel and then set up charting in excel.

    can anyone point me to a tutorial that explains how this might be accomplished... using ruby, of course.

    tia...
