Hi, Experts!

I am trying to export DataGrid into Excel 2007 in my asp.net application. I am using code below.

 Response.ClearHeaders()
 Response.ClearContent()
 Response.Write("<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content='text/html; charset=utf-8'>")
 Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & dt.TableName & ".xlsx")
 Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet"
 Response.Charset = ""
 Me.EnableViewState = False
 Dim tw As New System.IO.StringWriter
 Dim hw As New System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(tw)
 dtResult = dt
 Table.DataSource = dt
 Table.DataBind()
 Table.RenderControl(hw)
 Response.Write(tw.ToString())
 Response.End()


But I am getting the following error when I try to open the Excel sheet....

Error:
Excel cannot open the file fileName.xlsx because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matched the format of the file.

Above code is working fine for the Excel 2003 format. I just change two lines in above code for Excel 2003

 Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & dt.TableName & ".xls")
 Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"


Please suggest at earliest !!

Thanks

Excel 2007 cannot recognize the pure html format. You'd better use xls as the extension or  use any other technique
