Export Orders as PHPExcel sheets

Post by rasch » 18 Sep 2019, 14:11


I would like to export the orders as PHPExcel sheets. Where can I find the needed extension "ai-container" and where can I find an instruction manuel?

If I currently click on the download button in the order list I see the info that my export will be available in a few minutes for download, but no download is displayed on the dashboard.

Thank your for your help.

The ai-container extension uses the PHPExcel package, which is abandoned:

There's a successor, PHPSpreadsheet but there was no interest in the ai-container extension in the past, so we didn't update.

The order export creates CSV files by default which are equally supported by Excel. Creating them is an asynchronous task and you need to set up a cronjob for the order/export/csv job controller for that:
Professional support and custom implementation are available at Aimeos.com
