C# - Exporting HTML To Excel Without Losing Formatting?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a asp.net page that generates a report. For better or for worse, the entire thing is generated using nested tables. I am able to export the page to excel, however I lose all my formatting (can't set column widths, etc). Is there a way to handle this? I'm open to adding any goofy MS Office -specific tags that are required to the html side of it.

If this isn't feasible and if anyone has any other ideas, the requirement is that users need a report that:

a) They can manually touch up with some personalization / area-specific data

b) Needs to be hide/show columns based on user's location

c) Needs to run from the web site.

SQL Reporting :: Preserve SSRS Formatting When Exporting To Excel

Feb 15, 2011

I'm pretty sure SSRS doesn't do this on its own, find a third party product that could accomplish what I need from SSRS.

Specifically, I need SSRS to preserve settings when I export a report to excel for such things as excel page headers and footers, print range, column width, etc.

How can I accomplish this with SSRS, or what third party API will accomplish this?

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.

Visual Studio :: Exporting A .rdlc To Excel / Analagous Export Of That Report To Excel?

Nov 2, 2010

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.

Forms Data Controls :: Exporting Gridview Into Excel Is Not Generating The Result On Excel File?

Apr 1, 2010

when I used a code of exporting gridview into excel this code worked for a new website which is without masterpage.

my code:

public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control) { }
protected void BtnGenerateReport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Response.Buffer = true;
Response.Charset = "";
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";

Exporting DataSet To Excel Directly

Dec 14, 2010

trying to export a dataset to excel directly. I'm repeating, it's a dataset to excel (NOT DATA GRID OR GRID VIEW TO EXCEL). The problem I face is formatting. I'm exporting the excel which has aroung 13 columns.

A column should be in dd/MM/yyyy 00:00:00 format. Time will always be 00:00:00. It is exporting in correct format only, but for example when the date is Jan 05, 2010, when it comes from database it shows correct format as05/01/2010 00:00:00. When it binds, it binds as 5/1/2010 00:00 which is not suppose to happen.

Exporting Datatable Into Excel Using Vb.net Code Behind?

Mar 16, 2010

I've been working on this for a while and everything that I have read seems to tell me to use the same setup. I have been able to export the data to an xls file on my local C drive but that won't work when hosted on the server as I'll want users to export their data to their local machines as well... I guess the issue I'm having (or at least what I think am having) has to do with my response.end() function. I'll give you my code that works and the one that doesn't... In the end they will both do the same thing...Here is the code I've been playing with for my button:


Now here is where it will at least save on my local drive via a button in my drop down menu:


I need to prompt the user to save the file to a location and perhaps be able to name the file etc

Web Forms :: Exporting A Gridview To Excel?

Jan 4, 2011

On two of my web forms I have the ability to export a gridview to an excel file. On my local machine. it works. So when I click an image button it gives me the option of opening or saving a gridview as Excel.

However, when I run on the web server. It does not give me the option to open or save, it just opens the gridview as an excel document when the button is clicked.

Even stranger: I have this running on two separate forms. On one form when it opens the gridview as an Excel file it includes a tool bar, so that If a user wishes they could do a 'file', 'save'; However the other one does not have a tool bar?

Ideally I would like them to get the prompt like on the local machine, to open or save.
