I couldn't add the Export to Excel feature to my Dashboard due to the system error "Excel Export in Server Binding Mode".

I am wondering if it is doable by changing my current code. (As an example, I pasted one of the Dashboard tabs that we'd like to be able to download to Excel).

Thank you!

                    <b>All values in $mn</b>
                        .Columns(col =>
                            col.Bound(c => c.Asset).Title("Asset").Width(200);
                            col.Bound(c => c.Current).Title("Current").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE0).Title("Year End").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE1).Title("Year 1").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE2).Title("Year 2").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE3).Title("Year 3").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE4).Title("Year 4").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);
                            col.Bound(c => c.YE5).Title("Year 5").Format("{0:C}").Width(100);

                            .ToolBar(tools => tools.Excel())

                            .Excel(excel => excel
                                .ProxyURL(Url.Action("Excel_Export_Save", "Reports"))


And in Controller I have this:

        public ActionResult Excel_Export_Save(string contentType, string base64, string fileName)
            var fileContents = Convert.FromBase64String(base64);

            return File(fileContents, contentType, fileName);
