For me it getg slower and slower the more data i write to the excel sheet, finally the thread dies out in total.
Excel 2003 supported 65000 rows, Excel 2007 a lot more, however Excel package is gone at 4000 rows. Have you found the same problem???

Hey I am having similar troubles with both reading and writing to excel files. It takes upwards of a minute to do approx. 7x600 cells which seems to be way longer than it should be considering it only takes a fraction of a second to read/write the same info to text files. What was the error that you had that was causing you trouble? I am guessing that I am having the same issue. Anyone else have trouble with this or have a solution?
