Send Excel XML to client

P: n/a
Hi,
I found a very nice artice to convert a dataset to XML file that
complies with EXCEL schema
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/ExportToExcel.asp

However, the one thing that article didn't help me with, is how do I
send this file down to the browser so it opens up like Excel? Can
anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance

Sudesh,

I have an article on my site that shows how to convert a dataset to XML
also. I don't think my conversion complies with the Excel schema though.
(I'll have to look at that.) But it does show how to send the file so it
will open via excel on the client.

If you go to my site, www.aboutfortunate.com, and click the "Code Library"
link at the top of the page you can view the code you need by clicking on
the second article in the datagrid you'll find there: "Output a datagrid as
an excel spreadsheet page."
