Thanks, Ken - my problem isn't getting it into Base64 - well, I'd have work on that - my problem is, can it be used in XML Spreadsheet format - the Excel 2003 format - not Open XML.

So this is a start if I go that route.

I've just about finished a first round with CGIDEV2 - SOOOOO much faster, and more Excel attributes are possible, including nice borders and number formats and all that were not preserved using the SQL2JXL Command.

I mean seconds instead of a minute per workbook!!

Base64 encoding is pretty simple. Every three bytes of input is

You just have to split the three bytes into four groups of six bits
each and treated that as an unsigned integer offset into an array of
the output characters.

There is padding if the total number of input bytes isn't a multiple
of three so that the total number of output bytes is a multiple of
