Hi Dennis,
Glad you made this work - hopefully the last part isn't too difficult to sort 
out!

How are you calling the Export? Is it via the normal /cgi/export url, or 
another means?

Have you got a 'mimetype' and a 'suffix' parameter set in your export plugin?

Does the 'MultilineExcel' export plugin provide a useful example?
- Setting up either the supplied filehandle, or a filehandle to a variable:
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Feprintsug%2Fmultiline_excel%2Fblob%2Fmaster%2Flib%2Fplugins%2FEPrints%2FPlugin%2FExport%2FMultilineExcel.pm%23L44-L58&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cd7391bf4bd724b9ed0a208d828162b6c%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=R9v9Jfvw0z2O9ykUvOfCDd5l3BvFdH7Ie2sY3ugk%2BQw%3D&amp;reserved=0
- returning - either undef (if a filehandle was supplied) - or the variable:
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Feprintsug%2Fmultiline_excel%2Fblob%2Fmaster%2Flib%2Fplugins%2FEPrints%2FPlugin%2FExport%2FMultilineExcel.pm%23L93-L98&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cd7391bf4bd724b9ed0a208d828162b6c%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=aehDw2J5VoJzpcz3kQII6qJYYDkn5BV%2BjSwe8i76AA0%3D&amp;reserved=0

If that doesn't help, let me know and I'll do some more thinking!

Cheers,
John

Hi John,

thanks for your quick answer. With your help, I could more or less do
what I want with the document saving it to some path on the server.

However, I'm struggling to find out how to return the actual document in
my export plugin's "output_list" subroutine. Returning $oodoc or the
file path doesn't work, obviously. Can you help me out once more, please?

Cheers,
Dennis
