Hi, I found an very interesting article on converting Datagrids to Excel. I apologize that I forgot the name of the author/article but it was very helpful. Problem: it converts only the current page on the Datgrid to Excel and if there are other pages it does not.

Hi, I have a DataGrid, whose sourceI am exporting to Excel. This works fine except for the Column ordering. My datasource is not a datatable, with a typical SELECT statement where I can select the column orders. Instead the datasource is a class which implements IList, containing a collection of my data. My problem again is that I don't know how to control the order of the columns that are exported.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.
