I am generating an excel report from the GridView results.
Their is a column like size and it may have a leading zero like '05'
Excel is formatting 05 as a number and displaying it as 5 .

How to retain the leading zero.

I fixed it like this->In Page_PrerenderComplete i have

 oRow.Cells(2).Text = " " & oRow.Cells(2).Text

The problem was when generating the excel 05 was displayed as 5 in the excel sheet not in the gridview . gridview was fine.
So appended a space there and now it displays 05 as 05 and 5 as 5.
