SQL Reporting :: How To Prevent Or Detect An Excel Export From ReportViewer
Jan 14, 2010
I am using the ReportViewer control in Local mode on a web form in an ASP.NET application, and everything is working well. However, I need some expert with something. My app generates certain reports that cannot be exported to Excel. Therefore I would like to either
(1) preferably NOT display the "Excel" option in the Export dropdown list.
(2) detect when the user clicks the Export linkbutton, and then use code to determine what type of export is being done (Excel, PDF, etc).
I have a formatted table in ReportViewer. When I want to export to Excel though - I do not want to export the formatted table - instead I want to output the original/raw/unmassaged data table in an excel file.
What's the best way to intercept the Export to Excel function and output data in a different format?
Is it possible to disable export options on a server report in the ReportViewer control without changing the reportserver.config file?
I have the code to change a Local Report but not a Server Report. We have a group of reports we only want to be able to export to PDF and TIFF while the other server reports should be exportable in all formats.
I have a SQL Server Report which when exported to Excel is difficult to read. So, I created an Excel Template which I would like to use in place of the default Excel file Reporting Services exports to. How do modify my code so that my Excel template is used instead of the default when the user exports the report? Below is my code. A
I'm using the ReportViewer control on my .aspx page which displays a single report based on various user parameter selections. Dropdown2 is dependent on the DropDown1 selection (i.e. the user selects Unit A from DropDown1 and that results in 10 selections under Dropdown2, or the user selects Unit B from DropDown1 and that results in 15 selections under DropDown2, and so on). The user makes the selections, clicks the "Run Report" button, and the report displays as expected. The user then can export to Excel or PDF
I've received a request to allow users to run the report for all possible selections and export to their desired format rather than having to run the report for each separate DropDown1 and DropDown2 selection. So in other words, they don't even want to see the report on the screen, they just want to be able to click a button that runs the report for all possible parameter selections and export it to a single Excel or PDF document.
I am using local reports(rdlc) files for reports generation in Asp.netI am getting following error. Excel Rendering Extension : "Number of rows in the excel sheet exceeded the limit of 65536 rows" How can i solve this error.
I am using three headings and one image in SSRS's Header Section. in Details Section I am using Table Control when I Export it into Excel it Export Successfully but when I want to Sort the Excel it Shows Error due to Heading (Merge Cell). How Could i achieve it in SSRS using C#.
I have designed a report in RDLC. I am using Visual Studio 2008 and C#. Below is my code to export the report in excel. It always export the report to xls format which is Excel 2003. Excel 2003 has limited rows upto 65000. When i get rows more than 65000 for example 90000 then the export fails. Excel 2007 has power to handle more than 1000000 rows. I want to export the RDLC report to Excel 2007 to overcome the issue. how by modifying the following code i can export the report to Excel 2007.
byte bytes = null; bytes = viewer.LocalReport.Render("Excel", null, out mimeType, out encoding, out extension, out streamIds, out warnings); Response.Buffer = true; Response.Clear(); Response.ContentType = mimeType; Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=Rendered Services." + extension); Response.BinaryWrite(bytes); Response.Flush();
I have a trouble when exporting a local report to excel. The fields are exported to excel as text despite they are numbers and i have explicitly formatted them as such:
Tried a second approach to use: "Format" property to "g" or "N" as specified here: [URL] but this again does not result in "Number" format in excel but in a custom one. But I'm required to output these fields in number format, not custom one. So the second option does not work for me. Tried a third approach to do some casts like CDbl, but again this result in custom format. There should be some way to instruct the report to output these fields in number format.

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?
The web app in question provides a UI for editing a client (in the business sense, not the browser sense), identified by a ClientID. I store the ClientID in Session, which gets passed from page to page, along with a number of other pieces of data in Session. Works great.
The problem is that if the user opens a new browser window using Ctrl N or File->New Window (in IE), the new window comes up with the same page as the current page, with the same session info. Then if the user navigates to a different client in the 2nd window, the ClientID in session refers to the new client. If they go back to the original browser window and save, the original client gets saved using the 2nd ClientID, and all hell breaks loose, because now the data from the two jobs are intertwined.
I have enabled trace and verified that the new browser window uses the same SessionID as the original. If an entirely new instance of IE is opened, it has a different SessionID, so is not a problem. I have not yet investigated other browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox.
Is there any way to determine if a browser instance is opened for a web app which is already open in another window or tab? Or to prevent that from happening?
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 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.Clear(); 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); toPrint.RenderControl(htmlWrite); Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString()); Response.End();
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.
