Is there a way to have data on a webpage downloaded in an xlsx file format?

Anything I see seems to do xls (in which Excel warns you about opening the file) or csv... which is non formatted, etc.

Thanks

If you can download it in xls file format you can then easily save it in xlsx format.

another way would be to create that Excel (xlsx) at server side and then stream it back to browser. that would also protect your data in some sense as you no need to store the data as a hyperlink in your web portal.
