By placing usability of the spreadsheet above fidelity to the report design the SpudSoft Excel Emitters are able to provide advanced features including:
- Strictly "one BIRT cell" equals "one Excel cell" layout (no unhelpful filler rows/columns to make things look right).
- Rotated text (not just an image), invaluable when dealing with long column headers.
- Frozen panes, display (or not) of gridlines, formulae, headings & zeroes.
- Named sheets.
- Password protection.
