export an excel file from sharepoint
Posted on 2011-09-30
There is some code/werbparts on our site that display a lot of data in a grid on our site. In addition, they have another page with a few charts.
I need a way to create functionality to export this to excel so the user can click a button and save everything.
The chart will actually have to be built in excel, I can't just grab the picture from the website and display it.
Also, the data from the grid will have to be put into a spreadhseet. I am not as worried about this part.
I have exported to excel before, but it was just basically printing some data which was tab delimited with a certain doc type .
This actually will need to use different work sheets and use some excel functionality.
(I need a better answer than use excel services)
