I need to export a gridview to excel and am having trouble with the layout. I found a number of good articles that explain the basic mechanics of the export. One simple approach that works is:
Response.Clear() Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=FileName.xls") Response.Charset = "" Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.xls" Dim stringWrite As New System.IO.StringWriter() Dim htmlWrite As System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter = New HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite) grdExcelExport.RenderControl(htmlWrite) Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString()) Response.[End]()
My issue is that the gridview that appears on the screen with all of its added rows, hidden columns, and such does not show properly in Excel - the hidden columns from the header now show; there are missing data rows and so forth.
The RowDataBound event adds rows in the Header - these do not make it into Excel. The sql code does a GROUP BY WITH ROLLUP and the last total rows do not show in Excel, although the intermediate ones do. After my first DataBind of the table, I append 5 rows of special summary information which the RowDataBound processes correctly, but none of this goes to Excel.
So my wonderful Gridview on the screen becomes worthless in the transfer. How do I get my highly custom-formatted gridview into Excel??

I have a page that has a gridview that stores the value of search parameteres in my page.

I have not done this before so pardin this question that I am sure has been asked before. I have a user that asks me to run queries each month and copy & paste the data into a spreadsheet I want to set up the queries in a web page for him to choose, enter the data in the parameters and either show the data in a gridview then export or just export to the spreadsheet direclty to the file name and location of his choice. Using C# Links or code samples would great.
I have a gridview that I need to export to Excel. Excel is not installed on the server, but I would like to put a template on the server so that when the user exports the data it will use the template and open the file on the user's local machine.To make things slightly more complex, I need to export the data to Sheet2 because Sheet1 needs to be a graph (thus the need for the template).I cannot use any third party software and I have no ability to modify anything on the server. This is used in a corporate environment on a shared server that I don't have any control over.
So I have a gridview that is sortable. I also have enabled it to export to excel. The problem is that it exports the original datasource and not the sorted data on the screen. What I need is when the export control is fired, the exact gridview or newly sorted gridview is sent to an Excel spreadsheet. Here what my excel export looks like:
