function xlswrite_mod(m, header,colnames,filename);

%Modified to support more than 26 columns ...03-17-04

% xlswrite_mod     Easily create an Excel spreadsheet from MATLAB
%  xlswrite_mod(m,header,colnames,filename) creates a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet using
%  the MATLAB ActiveX interface.  Microsoft Excel is required.
%    m          Actual Matrix to write to file

% (Optional):
%    header     String of header information.  Use cell array for multiple lines
%                  DO NOT USE multiple row character arrays!!
%    colnames   (Cell array of strings) Column headers.  One cell element per column
%    filename   (string) Name of Excel file.  If not specified, contents will
%                  be opened in Excel.
% ex:
%   m = rand(100,4);
%   header = 'my data';
%   %header{1} = 'first line';      %This will give
%   %header{2} = 'second line';     % 2 header lines
%   colnames = {'Ch1','Ch2','Ch3','Ch4'};
%   xlswrite_mod(m,header,colnames,'myfile.xls');
%        will save the spreadsheet as myfile.xls.  The user
%           will never see Excel
%   xlswrite_mod(m,header,colnames);
%        will open Excel with these contents in a new spreadsheet.
