Forms Data Controls :: How To Export Multiple Gridviews To Word
Aug 31, 2010
I am trying to export multiple gridviews to Word. I am able to do this but what i want to do is add some headings and text in between each grivdiew. Please see my code below i am using to export the gridviews.
I have created a page which contains multiple gridviews for a large report. They now want to have a nice printout of these gridviews in Word.I am able to export multiple gridviews into Word fine, but the problem is I want to add a heading in between each gridview and am unable to do so.
I have 3 gridviews on my page, all with the same columns. I want the user to be able to click on a button and it export all three gridviews to an Excel file, whether on 3 different worksheets or the same worksheet (preferrably the same, but either will do).
And in code behind, I insert footer rows to total by department, so if I use this
Export to Excel control it will export only 1 gridview at a time and won't export the inserted footer rows separating the departments.
I have a database with an obscene number of fields: 169 (and yes it is fully normalized). There are so many fields that I had to split it up into two tables because auto generated SQL statements from an aspx page are limited to a certain number of fields (127 I think, but I can't find the reference with quick search). I do know that SQL server can handle 255 columns.
Working with different tables using auto generated SQL and auto generated template code is pretty much impossible without resorting to writing a ton of code to do all the sql work in the code behind (I'm lazy ok? You would be too with that many fields). So I've split the record data into two different formview pages. It's also easier on the user since they don't have such an enormously long page to scroll through. I used formview so that I could make the layout reasonable to look at rather than just a list like DetailsList would give.
So now I need to export this record (split over two pages) into Microsoft Word. I know how to do a basic export with just one page, but I don't know how to take two aspx pages and concatenate them into a single word doc, especially in the proper order. I want to do this from the formview because the Word doc has to have the same layout as the formview pages and writing a ton of css to accomplish that is a time consuming nightmare. I've attached a pic of page one so you can get the idea of the complexity of layout, page two is very similar.
I am needing to display two gridviews in the same panel on a form. Each of the gridviews has their own sqldatasource. Both datasources pull from the same table but they have a different record selection. When I view this in the browser I only see one gridview displayed. Can someone tell me how to do this or is there a better way to get a two gridview look without using the gridview?
I plan on having multiple Gridviews on one page populated completely in code behind. The only difference between them will be the Stored Procedure. In an effort to save having to write the following for each gridview, can I reuse the commands for each of them. Below is a sample of one of the commands that I would like to use, as well as the bind sub that I am using.
I realize that it will not be at all difficult to cut and paste each of these lines, and making the minor edits for each one. I just would like to keep my code behind file thin, as well as only limiting the chance for mistakes by using multiple commands.
I want to Export Dynamically generated grid view(Column numbers not fixed) to a word template(If possible format the table).Also the Auto Generated Edit and Delete button columns need to be hidden when exporting the data to word.
I have created a web app with a gridview that is connected to an sql data source to extract data. The web app consists of two pages (default.aspx and rategrid.aspx). On the default page i have a button that when clicked it displays rategrid page with the gridview data. On rategrid page I also have two buttons (one to go back to default page and one for export to word). When I click the word button, i get error (Control 'GridView1' of type 'GridView' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.).I have already looked at references online that reference to put (Public Overloads Sub VerifyRenderingInServerForm(ByVal control As Control) in code for Word button. However, I am still getting the same error.
I have data display in a gridview base on a dropdownlist. Basically, base on the downlist selection my gridview will be populated with the corresponding data. I have addresses and emails in the list. Where I am stuck and not sure how to do is export the emails to outlook for a mailmerge. For example, when the user clicks on button to send the emails in Outlook. The emails should be the ones that are display in the gridview. For the MS Word is to export the address to populate the the labels so the user can print out labels. Another button to send the address for the labels
I have a multiView control within which I have 3 views as part of building a customer order.
Step 1: Customer is selected from gridView and Customer Name is saved in MultiView Session.
Step 2: Products are chosen from gridView. The grid is re-bound depending on which product category is selected in a dropDownList. The product details are also stored.
Step 3: All of the details required to build the INSERT query are passed to labels on a form to be reviewed before committing to db. The next stage, now that I have managed to select multiple rows, will be to display this data in another gridView.
Everything works fine, except for the paging and dropDownList which is causing the checkbox state to be lost after postBack.
I've read a few articles on this, but I think I have made the task more complicated due to the dropDownList in addition to paging. Essentially the customer will be able to select various product lines, across various bindings of the gridView so I need to persist the checkbox state and retain the data for the INSERT query.
I have a word template in which I define lots of bookmark (textbox for user input).I have a grid view that I need to export to word. Word template put on the server so that when the user exports the data it will use the template.I cannot use any third party software .Any sample code would be very helpful. I'm running ASP.NET 2.0 with Visual Studio 2005.
on my webpage having 5 gridview n when m click on PrintAll ... it combine all record in one gridview .....so wt can i do to get the Gridview as it is on after print .......n m rendering Div nt gridview . attaching code also.
Refering to your article on exporting the gridview to Word/Excel/PDF/CSV, I modified to code to populate the GV dynamically coz they have different data and different columns as per the selection. But after the data population, when I try to export the data it does not export any data instead for eg. in Word it just export <div> </div>. The code is pasted below.
Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Dim dt As DataTable = GetData() Dim dcol As DataColumn Dim bfields As BoundField GridView1.Columns.Clear()
