export datagridview to excel

18 New Member
Hi All,

I try to export the table in DataGridView control on my form to MS excel with the following code.

private void fnExtractToExce l()
{
Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .ApplicationCla ss excel = new Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Excel .ApplicationCla ss();
excel.Applicati on.Workbooks.Ad d(true) ;
DataTable inventoryTable = this.inventoryD ataSet.Tables["Inventory"];
try
{
int cIndex = 0;
foreach (DataColumn col in inventoryTable. Columns)
{
cIndex++;
excel.Cells[1, cIndex] = col.ColumnName;
}//end foreach

int rIndex = 0;
foreach (DataRow row in inventoryTable. Rows)
{
rIndex++;
cIndex = 0;
foreach (DataColumn col in inventoryTable. Columns)
{
cIndex++;
excel.Cells[rIndex + 1, cIndex] = row[col.ColumnName].ToString();
}//end foreach
}//end foreach
excel.Save("Inv entory.xls");
excel.Workbooks .Close();
}//end try
catch
{ }
}//fnExtractToExce l

But each time when I try to extract via a menuItem, it creates Inventory.xls for me and prompts if I want to save the changes made to Sheet1.xls. I do not understand from where did sheet1.xls has creeped into my program.
My aim is to allow the user to save the file at different locations (or at same location with a different name) each time when he wants to, without having to prompt him about previous file.Do I need to make use of a save dialogbox?

Thank You All In advance

ArtTeam.

I have an ASP page that calls ASP routines that I created that execute a database query and return the results to a recordset. I then iterate through the recordset and display the data in a table.

Dear all, I'm sure someone has already done this, so as not to wish to re-invent the wheel - and Google not turning up anything I can use, does anyone have a suitable function into which I can pass a DataGridView - and have all the columns and rows parsed and an Excel Workbook created with the DataGridView contents and column headers transposed onto the first Worksheet? Many thanks in advance!

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
