I'm trying to create a save dialog and convert to csv format. When i click cancel button, it prompt error. how do i solve it?
and in the dialog, there's a section call "save as". How do i type in .csv text in there?

below my code:
private void btnCSV_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      string fileName = "";
      string fileNameDel = "";
      string fileNameExt = "";
      CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument report = new CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument( );
      report = this.crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource as CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument;
      if (report != null)
            SaveFileDialog SDialog = new SaveFileDialog();
            SDialog.DefaultExt = "xls";
            if (SDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                  report.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.Excel, SDialog.FileName);
                  fileName = SDialog.FileName;
                  fileNameDel = fileName;
                  fileNameExt = fileName;

            Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application excelApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();
            excelApp.Visible = false;
            excelApp.DisplayAlerts = false;
            Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook excelWk = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(fileName,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing);

            fileName = Path.ChangeExtension(fileName, ".csv");
                  (fileName, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlFileFormat.xlCSVWindows,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlSaveAsAccessMode.xlNoChange,
                  Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
