Using the DataTableFormatProvider

The DataTableFormatProvider allows you to easily convert existing DataTable to a worksheet and vice versa. Below you can see how to use this format provider to import/export data tables.

To use the DataTableFormatProvider you need to reference the Telerik.Windows.Documents.Spreadsheet assembly.

Import

Example 1 shows how you can import a DataTable. The sample instantiates a DataTableFormatProvider and passes the table to its Import method.

Example 1: Import DataTable

DataTable table = GetTable(); 
DataTableFormatProvider provider = new DataTableFormatProvider(); 
 
Workbook workbook = provider.Import(table); 
You can import the data of the DataTable to an existing worksheet as well.

Example 2: Import DataTable to an existing Worksheet

DataTable table = GetTable(); 
DataTableFormatProvider provider = new DataTableFormatProvider(); 
 
Workbook workbook = new Workbook(); 
Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets.Add(); 
 
provider.Import(table, worksheet); 

Export

Example 3 demonstrates how you can export an existing Worksheet to a DataTable. The snippet assumes that you already have a Workbook with some data.

Example 3: Export Worksheet to a DataTable

Workbook workbook = GetWorkbook(); 
DataTableFormatProvider provider = new DataTableFormatProvider(); 
 
DataTable table = provider.Export(workbook.ActiveWorksheet);
