Subject: output() method fails on files > 7Mb
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 469b
The output() method returns undef for generated Excel documents that come out to >7Mb. The write_file() method works fine. Failing test attached (needs cleaning up to check that it's running with a version of Spreadsheet::WriteExcel that can write large files). Not massively urgent for me ATM. Got around it by monkey patching. Thought you should know Cheers, Adrian PS And thanks for a trez useful module. Apart from this issue - it's saved me a bunch of time.
