What is the quickest way to export an Oracle data table to an excel sheet using Vb.Net (2008)?  I am currently reading in one row at a time and writing it to an excel sheet using a dataset.  However, the process takes hours to run.  There are approximately 60,000 rows to export.

Bind your table to a datagrid or grid view
then export the datagrid or grid view to excel

Though it appears TechTiger007 solution would work, I am looking for something that will not use a grid or require any form objects.  I have created a report engine that creates multiple excel reports using data from Oracle tables.  However one sheet on the report is a data dump into excel from an Oracle table.  An example of 1 report would be an excel workbook with a summary sheet, trended data sheet, and finally a detail sheet (data dump).  This a commad line application only, no forms.

Rather than export Oracle table to excel, import Oracle table from excel. See attached.

Sorry, I don't use Vb.net. Not sure, but perhaps by importing the table using the excel query, there is underlying vb code that is written that could be accessed. Hopefully, some vb/excel experts might better be able to help.

Hello,

Using TOAD or SQL Navigator (both are products of Quest)
Just right click on the query output and save as and then choose XLS File
