Export to Excel

The Spreadsheet utilizes the Excel export module framework to produce Excel files directly in the browser.

The output files are in the OOXML Spreadsheet format with an .xlsx extension. The legacy .xls binary format is not supported.

User Interface

The default toolbar configuration includes an Excel Export button. Clicking on it opens a dialog box for entering the file name.

API Export Reference

The Spreadsheet client-side API includes the saveAsExcel method for initiating the export via JavaScript. This method does not ask you to specify a file name. Instead, it sets the value in excel.fileName.

Known Issues

Currently, the export module does not handle sorting and filtering. This limitation will be addressed before the widget goes out of its Beta version.
