Hello Experts,
I need to export string data to excel using console app (C#) without using any third party libraries...

i am getting object reference error...HttpContext.Current.Response.ClearContent();

here is my code so far...( i have it on class library project)

using System.Web;

 private void ExportToExcel(string strData)
            HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=BatchResponse.xls");
            HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/excel";
            catch (Exception ex)
                log.LogExceptionError("Batch Settlement Process - ExportToExcel", ex);
                log = null;

Any help?

Where is  HttpContext defined ?

As a matter of interest, if this is a console app why are you using Http to export to Excel ?
