As of Q1 2015, RadGridView exposes a new method – ExportToXlsx
which allows exporting to the new excel .Xlsx format. The old way to export RadGridView through Export method and GridViewExportOptions is used for the old excel format. You can take a look at Microsoft Excel article where you can find detailed information on the matter.
Please correct me if I missing something.
