Hi,

I have a RadGrid which exports data successfully in both Excel and .CSV file. The odd behaviour I am noticing is that when the page is run in intranet, IE prompts to either open/save the exported file. If I click on open, Excel application automatically opens it.

The same application when deployed in internet behaves differently. Exported data from grid is not opened automatically by excel instead prompts "OPEN WITH" different list of applications to choose from. File type is not recognized and original file name should be "PO_Media_Report_Excel.xls" rather it shows PO_Media_Report [1] or something like that.... :(
Could you please let me know why is it happening?

Codesnippet as below:

 

gridPOMedia.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData =

True

 

 

gridPOMedia.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = True

 

 

gridPOMedia.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = True

 

 

gridPOMedia.ExportSettings.FileName = "PO_Media_Report_Excel" + Now.Date

 

gridPOMedia.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel()



On the same note, why the .pdf export looks so horrible. If you have say around 10-15 columns in the grid, column data are overlapping.

Many thanks for suggestion.

Hi Milan,

Try removing the Now.Date from your FileName assignment statement and see if the file opens correctly.

As for the pdf export, you have to set the width of the pdf page beforehand and wide enough to accomodate all the columns of the RadGrid.

Thanks. It seems to be working. Just wondering it is a issue with RadGrid or the IE?

Cheers,
Milan

Hello Milan,

I believe the reason is that the browser gets confused by the special characters (such as slashes or dots) that the date substring adds to the file name.
