I have 2 Radgrid ,1st Radgrid shows detail data with grouping and 2nd Radgrid shows total count ,i want to export data from both Radgrid to one excel file ,dataset for both Radgrid are different.

for this i have taken one another Parent Radgrid inside the div tag and above 2 Radgrids are inserted into the ItemTemplate column of
Parent RadGrid,data for both child Radgrid  binds on the Item_DataBound event of Parent Radgrid.Visibilty of div tag for Parnt Grid set to hidden.

I have used  "GridGroupByExpression" and " GridGroupByField" for grouping of 1st Child grid

Data successully bind to both child Radgrid and for export to excel i have used "RadGrid.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel()"syntax
Data for both child Radgrid shows in one excel file

but my issue is that after exporting  "grey colour patches"  are shown in excel sheet for 1child Radgrid with grouping .
due to which data is not properly visible and overlapped by the grey colur patches.please find the attached file "Report1.xls" for reference.

on removing the grouping "grey colour patches"  are not visible.

Any help or suggetion on  how to remove "grey colur patches " will be Grateful.

setting for Parent  Radgrid  OpenInNewWindow="True" IgnorePaging="True" ExportOnlyData = "false"

code snippet for Grouping:

GridGroupByExpression expression = new GridGroupByExpression();
            GridGroupByField gridGroupByField;

            gridGroupByField = new GridGroupByField();
            gridGroupByField.FieldName = ApplicationConstants.Reports.Name;
            gridGroupByField.HeaderText = "Report";
            gridGroupByField.HeaderValueSeparator = " : ";
            gridGroupByField.FormatString = "<strong>{0}</strong>";

            gridGroupByField = new GridGroupByField();
            gridGroupByField.FieldName = ApplicationConstants.Reports.Name;

Code snippet for Export to excel:

            RadGrid.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;

            RadGrid.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = false;
            RadGrid.ExportSettings.Excel.Format = GridExcelExportFormat.Html;

   Environment details:

   Asp.Net  3.5 version
  OS : Windows server 2003
  Internet explorer : ie 6.0

Hello Ram,

You can remove the unwanted controls/items manually.
bool isExport = false;
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    isExport = true;

protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
    if (isExport == true)

Simple recursive method that will remove all controls/items - you can customize it as suitable for your scenario
public void RemoveControls(Control ctrl)
    var q = new Stack<Control>(ctrl.Controls.OfType<Control>());
    while (q.Count > 0)
        Control control = q.Pop();
        if (control is IButtonControl || control is ICheckBoxControl || control is ITextControl || control is GridPagerItem || control is GridFilteringItem)
        if (control.HasControls())

I hope this helps.
