Copy the Excel_Writer.jar to the plugins folder. Excel_Writer and XY Coordinates to Excel will be installed in the File>Save As menu. Excel_Writer_GUI installs in the Plugins menu
Excel_Writer is a IJ PlugIn that saves the IJ ResultsTable directly to a user-specified
Excel file. The plugin will create the Excel file in the specified location and
add the data to a new worksheet. In case that the excel file already exists,
a new worksheet will be added to the existing file - data is never overwritten.
The plugin can also handle other tables instead of the ResultsTable.
You need to modify the source of Excelwriter to do this (look in SaveToExcel.java
for more info). This plugin is recordable and also contains methods that allow
automatization and batch processing via other plugins (look in SaveToExcel.java for
Excel_Writer_GUI is a graphical interface to Excel_Writer.
Upon execution, a toolbar and menu will appear which contains the following functions:
menuFileNew, Creates a new ExcelFile
menuFileOpen, Opens an existing ExcelFile
menuFileSave, Saves the current ExcelFile
menuFileClose, Closes the current ExcelFile
menuFileExit, Exits the plugin
menuSheetAdd, Adds a new worksheet to the workbook
menuSheetDel, Deletes a worksheet
menuSheetRename, Renames a worksheet
menuSheetSelect, Selects a worksheet for writin
menuWriteRT, Writes the ResultsTable
menuWriteRow, Writes the last row of the ResultsTable
menuWriteColumn, Writes a column of the ResultsTable
menuWriteHeads, Writes the columnheaders of the ResultsTable
menuWriteClip, Writes the contents of the ClipBoard
menuDeleteLastRow, Deletes the last row written
menuDeleteCol, Deletes a column
In addition, when a file is open, a viewer window will show the contents of the ExcelFile.
This function relies on classes written by @author Andrew C. Oliver and @author Jason Height
as a user contribution to the Apache Jakarta POI project. Those classes and source

This version of Excel_Writer_GUI still has some bugs...
This Plugin saves the XY Coordinates of a ROI to an excelfile
It is identical to the XYWriter in IJ, but saves to excel instead of to a text file,
and it processes all slices in a stack.
