Execute PHP to Open and Write to Excel

Hi All,

I would like to see if I can write some excel based reports with data from SugarCRM CE. I have had a look on the web and it appears possible to write PHP code which can open excel and write data to it and I was hoping to work out how to do it. Essentially, I have a list of Jobs which I have created via a custom module and I was hoping to be able to use the search stuff in the module to only show the jobs I want to report on and then somehow add in a button to fire off some code to write these jobs to Excel.

Just wondering if anyone else has done this previously and how they have managed to get this to fire off from SugarCRM? Are we able to add in buttons to fire code off etc?

Many thanks
