Export GridView To Excel Without Losing Grid Lines In Excel?
Mar 4, 2010
I have a GridView that I want to export to Excel. When I use the sample code I find online, it exports the content to Excel just fine, but for some reason it also clears out all grid lines outside of my exported table.
For your average excel user this is easy enough to fix, but I need this solution to work for everyone.
So then is there a way to export the data in a GridView into an Excel Workbook so that it looks like it was just typed into Excel? I've pasted the code I am using below, assume that a GridView called toPrint exists and has accurate data.
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + name + "_Registration_Forms.xls");
Response.Charset = "";
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
Page.EnableViewState = false;
System.IO.StringWriter stringWrite = new System.IO.StringWriter();
System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);
EDIT: Found one partial solution. If I export as a comma-delimited list and set the header to be a CSV file, it opens fine and all grid lines (even those outside of the exported data) are showing. The only problem with this of course is having to strip out every comma and newline character from my values before exporting them.
It's been a while since I've posted here, but I do have a vexing question. I have an export to Excel that is working just fine with the exception that I have one blank line at the top of my export and one blank line at the bottom of my export. All paging and sorting are turned off at this point, so I'm really not sure where these empty lines are coming from. They appear above the header row and below the last row of data, almost like there's an invisible line that gets created after the data makes it to Excel.

I have a web form that contains a GridView, which impliments Search in Grid with a TextBox and Button control in the footer. This works as I have it now. I have also implimented a Export to Excel function. The Export to Excel works by itself if the Search in Grid function is not included in the footer.The Export to Excel function errors when trying to render the Grid for the export. Is there a better way to incorporate both functions and accomplish the same thing? Am I missing something simple?
I've got an .rdlc report which I print from my .net app (C# Visual Studio 2005), where I use a RemoteReportPrinter object. I give it as parameters the server name, report name, report parameters, etc. Works fine. My question is, I would live to do an analagous export of that report to Excel. Set it up exactly the same, but have it export to Excel rather than print, probably using some other type of object than RemoteReportPrinter.

I do not want to install Excel on theserver and instead want to utilize the Excel installed on the user's computer for this purpose as every user's computer is expected to have Excel installed. Is this possible to do? How to do this?
I am not an expert in this. let me know if you would need any more information or clarification.

I want to export gridview to Excel and followed the code from the link below but never get it work. [URL] I used the data as below but after exporting, it became 1234567, 2266998,3388445. They are all missing '0'.
i have a code for export to excel,in my gridview i set paging to dispaly no of records in pagecount. but in my export to excel it is not giving me entire records,insted it is showing me the same paging with 6 record.
i have this website with a gridview and a button that enables to user to export the data from the gridview to excel using this code.
If you would imagine the result of the exported data from gridview (Data Only without any paging...etc...), the intersection of the first Row and First Column is placed in A1 cell of excel to display the table.
what i wish to do is upon exporting i would like to ex. add 2 more rows above the table so that the resulting table intersection of the first row and first column is located in C1 cell.
I have a custom control gridview:I have a filter row in the header of each column with a textbox and a button to filter. when the user clicks the filter button this is one of the blocks of code that get executed
Code: Protected Overridable Sub ApplyFilterCommand(ByVal filterCommand As String) Dim dsv As DataSourceView = Me.GetData
If (TypeOf dsv Is SqlDataSourceView) Then
[code]....this works. However, all rows from the datasource are exported. say the initial number of rows where 54. I then filter a column, the number of rows in the gridview are now 29.I then export to excel, and all 54 rows are exported.
I have done this before, and am simply pasting the code that works on other pages to this page, but I cannot seem to get this function to work on this particular page. When Excel is opened after the export, all I get is <div> on line 1 and a few lines later I get </div>.
