    Hi Ajit,

    Thank you for writing.

    Such a functionality is not supported by the RadGridView export mechanism and it makes no difference whether the grid will export one row more or less (the header row). Would you please share with us why would you need such a functionality, and if you have just one sheet, why don't you just replace it?

    In addition, I would like to let you know that there is a feature request for exporting grid to a separate sheet in excel which is somewhat close to your case and if you consider it useful, feel free to add your vote for it here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/details/Issue=9426.

    Hello Ajit,

    Thank you for the introduced clarification. We will consider such a feature in future if there is demand for it. 

    For the time being, the only thing I can suggest is to export the grid to excel, and then write merge the existing template file with the exported one by working with the xml from the files. However, this is not connected to our controls and you will have to implement such a merge on your own.

    I hope that you find this information useful.
