I use the code attached to export data in xls. It works fine in any browser, except Chrome, where the file is exported as aspx instead xls. It is something wrong with my code or it's a browser setting that shoud be modified? Thanks
Response.Clear();
                    Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "oferta");
                    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
                    Response.Charset = "";
                    StringWriter stringWrite = new System.IO.StringWriter();
                    HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite); 
if (gv.Rows.Count>0)
                    {
                        htmlWrite.Write("<b>Client selectat:</b>");
                        gv.RenderControl(htmlWrite);
                        htmlWrite.WriteBreak();
                    }
string html = stringWrite.ToString();
                    string pattern=@"(\p{Sc})?";
                    System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex rgx=new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(pattern);
                    html = rgx.Replace(html, "");
Response.Write(html);
HttpContext.Current.Response.End();

Haven't tested the code, but http://my.opera.com/lamhoanghiep/blog/2010/08/05/export-gridview-to-excel might work for you. Looks like they're adding

HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentEncoding = Encoding.Unicode
HttpContext.Current.Response.BinaryWrite(Encoding.Unicode.GetPreamble())

try
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=oferta.xls");

How To Reduce Deployment Times With Pre-Baked AMIs

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.

the problem appears when I'm trying to export more than 1 gridview. At 1 gridview export, the output is in xls format

maybe you're calling Reponse.End() twice?
