Hello, this going to be a very specific scenario that I can't find any documentation on.

Scenario:
Basically, I have all of the reports that we usually run in the ReportViewer saved in the database with the conditional formatting rules and columns saved there as well.  Currently, there has been a pull to begin emailing certain reports to users in excel format, with the same conditional formatting rules as the ReportViewer.

Question:
Is there a way to run a report using the telerik reporting and set up the same conditional formatting without actually visualizing it in a ReportViewer?  Once this is done saving the file to excel on the server.

Thank you for your time and help in advance.

If I need to specify anymore information on this topic please ask.

Hello Chris,

Unfortunately it is not possible to have the conditional formatting rules applicable for the exported excel file. After all the purpose of a report is to present information in a WYSIWYG manner and not to create fully functional excel spreadsheets.

Kind regards,
