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");

not working either way (Encoding or adding .xls)

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?
