I have an ASP.Net page (C# code behind). The page had 4 gridviews on it, each showing records based on who is logged in. What I want to do is take the contents of each grid and export them to the same excel spreadsheet sheet. Is there a way to do this? Possibly tell it to export each grid to a different cell range? Thanks for any help.

Hi

you can export each one to separate excel sheet or you can export all of them to one excel sheet

what you can do is to join all the data tables into one table

for example
 gridview1 datasource is dt1
 gridview2 datasource is dt2
 gridview3 datasource is dt3
 gridview4 datasource is dt4

in code behind create a new data table and add all the dt's to It

then export this dt to one excel sheet
Thanks

I personally use the OpenXML standards for newer versions of Office ( Im pretty sure 2007+ work with OpenXML ).  You can either do one of two things with this approach, code it manually ( not recommended as it is very time consuming ) or you can simply utilize a wrapper.  The wrapper I use is called closed XML ( http://closedxml.codeplex.com ) and is very easy to implement.  The closed xml wrapper will handle all of your requirements and more... I typically add sorting functionality on exports and header formatting when it makes sense.  Take a look at the link there is a plethora of cool stuff you can do with this library.

Hope this helps
