I am also facing the same problem. File crashed when trying to create
multiple spreadsheets each having different values.

Please provide some solutions.

According to the documentation, $worksheet->addWorksheet() may return a
PEAR_Error. You should check the return value using
PEAR::isError($worksheet) before calling $worksheet->writeString(). The
PEAR_Error object contains an error message explaining what went wrong.

I'm trying to write to multiple worksheet.
First I read a text file, for each line I create a worksheet (since now
no problems) than I try to write values into these worksheets (this does
not work!).

Test script:
require_once 'Spreadsheet/Excel/Writer.php';
$workbook = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer('test.xls');

foreach($readfile as $r){
 $worksheet =& $workbook->addWorksheet($l); //This works
 $worksheet->writeString(0, 0, 'Somevalue'); //This does not work

Expected result:
I expect an excel file with multiple worksheet populated with values

Actual result:
This is the error I find:
PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined method PEAR_Error::writeString() in
D:\phpwebsite\excel.php on line 7
