You can not print to Excel from the out of box ReportBuilder. You need third party devices for that.

You can emulate excel by printing to a .csv file which excel will hapiliy open


ppReport1.TextFileName := 'c:\test.csv'
ppReport1.ShowPrintDialog := False;
ppReport1.DeviceType := dtTextFile;

Otherwise get the third party devices, good one is

You need to set the following properties of the TppReport component:

AllowPrintToFile = True
DefaultFileDeviceType = XLSReport
DeviceType = XLSReport
