hello,
i have i radgrid with a column named "Price" and "Discount".
In the SQL database these values are of type: decimal(9,2)

in the radgrid they are like:
price          discount
11060.00    6.50

when i export them
to excel some results are correct presented in the column in the same way
but many has a complete different value, for example:
430,10      0,85

i notice that there is a "," instead of "."
when i export to CSV everything is correct.

has anybody else found the same bug?
thanks

Hello Rudy,

Please elaborate whether you export to Excel or ExcelML format. Also I suggest you open the file with a regular editor (like Wordpad) and check if your values are exported properly or not.

Kind regards,

thanks,
what do you mean with:
Please elaborate whether you export to Excel or ExcelML format.

my export is:
 protected void btnExportXLS_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            _stand.GetAll();

            FormatColumnsForExport();

            gridBooth.Rebind();

            gridBooth.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = false;
            gridBooth.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = true;
            gridBooth.ExportSettings.FileName = "ExportGlobal.xcl";
            gridBooth.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
            gridBooth.MasterTableView.CommandItemDisplay = GridCommandItemDisplay.None;
            gridBooth.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel();
        }

columns:
 <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Price"  EmptyDataText="0" HeaderText="Prezzo"
                            UniqueName="Price">
                        </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                        
                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Discount"  EmptyDataText="0" HeaderText="Sconto"
                            UniqueName="Discount">
                        </telerik:GridBoundColumn>

            FormatColumnsForExport();

            gridBooth.Rebind();

            gridBooth.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = false;

Hello Rudy,

I suppose the reason is that Excel parse the numbers as specified in your regional settings. You can try the following approach:
protected void RadGrid1_ExcelExportCellFormatting(object source, ExcelExportCellFormattingEventArgs e) 
    if (e.FormattedColumn.UniqueName == "Price"
        e.Cell.Style["mso-number-format"] = @"\@"

Export to Microsoft Excel/Word/PDF/CSV
mso-number-format

What is this @"\@" syntax?  This is an IDE error in VB.  What is the difference between ExcelExportCellFormatting and ExcelMLExportStylesCreated?

The example you gave me, Daniel (transposed to VB):
Protected Sub radGrid1_ExcelMLExportRowCreated( source As Object, e As GridExportExcelMLRowCreatedArgs )  
    e.Row.Cells.GetCellByName( "price" ).StyleValue = "myStyle" 
    e.Row.Cells.GetCellByName( "max_cost" ).StyleValue = "myStyle" 
    e.Row.Cells.GetCellByName( "min_cost").StyleValue = "myStyle" 
End Sub  
 
Protected Sub radGrid1_ExcelMLExportStylesCreated( source As Object, e As GridExportExcelMLStyleCreatedArgs )  
    Dim myStyle As StyleElement = New StyleElement( "myStyle" )  
    myStyle.NumberFormat.Attributes.Add( "ss:Format",  "$#" )  
    e.Styles.Add( myStyle )  
End Sub 
does not work; the methods do not appear to be firing (a RadAjaxManger1.Alert( "test" ) fails) and no formatting of the resultant Excel worksheet is occurring.

My export settings are typical:
Protected Sub btn_export_Click( sender As Object, e As EventArgs ) Handles btn_export.Click  
    radGrid1.MasterTableView.UseAllDataFields = True 
    radGrid1.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = True   
    radGrid1.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = True 
    radGrid1.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = True   
    radGrid1.ExportSettings.Excel.Format = GridExcelExportFormat.ExcelML   
    Me.radGrid1.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel  
End Sub 


Cheers!
Mark

Progress!  Daniel, you didn't tell me that these attributes had to be in the markup to fire the code-behind methods:
OnExcelMLExportRowCreated="radGrid1_ExcelMLExportRowCreated"   
OnExcelMLExportStylesCreated="radGrid1_ExcelMLExportStylesCreated" 
I found them in one of the mini-projects you sent me, so thanks for that.  Now, the formatting code you shot me:
myStyle.NumberFormat.Attributes.Add( "ss:Format",  "$#" ) 
is producing values in the Excel spreadsheet without commas, like "$123456" and where the value was 0, it is now merely "$."  Is there a source for these formatting codes I can look up myself?  Like, what is the syntax for comma-delimited groupings of 3 and how to keep the original 0 in the cell so it displays as "$0"?

Thanks, bud.

Okay, I got the grouping by trial and error: .Add( "ss:Format", "$###,###" ).  This gives me what I need, which is a non-decimal currency, but it changes an amount of 0 (zero) to nothing; that is, from [0] to [$].  ( "ss:Format", "Currency" ) adds the .00 decimal and there does not seem to be a way to get rid of the decimal like you can in the markup for a RagGrid column by specifying a data format of "{0:c0}"  

How to prepend a "$" to a 0?

Thanks,
Mark

I found the answer in the custom cell formatting settings in Excel: ( "ss:Format", "$#,##0" ) .

Time for a beer!
