    I am trying to do a simple Export to Excel but when I add the Export snippet to the grid I get the "Excel export is not supported in server binding mode." message. 


    I am actually pulling a list of Active Directory users from a custom Object. The Grid works perfect.  All I want to do is because to export the list to an Excel Spreadsheet.


    My Controller code, that returns my list

    public ActionResult GisUsersTL()
                 var ADList = this.GetGisUsers("GISUsers");
                      ViewData["ADList"] = ADList;   //Testing Telerik option to bind data
                 return View("GISUsersTL", ADList);


    RAZOR page that bombs


    @model IEnumerable<GISPortal.Models.ADGisUsers>
    @using GISPortal.Controllers

    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jszip/2.4.0/jszip.min.js"></script>
            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(p => p.Username);
                columns.Bound(p => p.DisplayName);
                columns.Bound(p => p.Department);
                columns.Bound(p => p.Office);
                columns.Bound(p => p.JobTitle);
                columns.Bound(p => p.MobilePhoneNumber);
                columns.Bound(p => p.EmailAddress);
               .Pageable() //Enable paging.
               .ToolBar(tools => tools.Excel())  //This is the line that bombs so I can't even add any more custom export lines.

    Hi Jason,

    If you would like to export the grid server-side you can use the SpreadStreapProcessing library. Please examine the article below that describes the approach in more detail:
