We are using C# language. The sql query data is dumped to excel sheet through data grid.
The number field is not properly displayed. The number 100003434 is displayed as 2.233456E.11.
But we need to display as 100003434.
below is the code used.


public class ExcelProblemInvoice : System.Web.UI.Page
      {
private string strVendorID = "";
protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGrid datagridProblemInvoice;

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{                  
try
{
if (Session["SESSION_USER_ID"] != null && Session["SESSION_USER_ID"].ToString() != "")
      {
      strVendorID = Session[ApplicationConstants.vendorID].ToString();
                  // Put user code to initialize the page here
                        Response.Clear();
                        Response.Charset = "";
                        Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";            
            System.IO.StringWriter stringWrite = new System.IO.StringWriter();
System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);                
Controller controller = new Controller();
DataSet dataProblemInvoice = controller.SearchExcel(strVendorID );

      datagridProblemInvoice.DataSource = dataProblemInvoice;                                    
                        datagridProblemInvoice.DataBind();

                        datagridProblemInvoice.RenderControl(htmlWrite);

                        Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString());
                        Response.End();
                  }

You have to use some string formating routine to convert your number to an appropriate format. String formating in C# is well explained here:
